Shark Reef

The aquatic world of the Caribbean comes alive in Shark Reef, a 362,000-gallon saltwater pool where snorkelers swim fin-to-fin with exotic marine life including butterfly fish, French angels, tangs, groupers and even nurse sharks. Other guests have the opportunity to watch snorkelers through the underwater portholes of a wrecked ship in the center of the reef.

Nearby, Hammerhead Fred's Dive Shop provides necessary underwater equipment for Shark Reef, including wet suits, masks and snorkels.
