Shark Reef Aquarium - Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas


Visiting Shark Reef Aquarium at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas


Aqua hobbyists visiting Las Vegas are in for a real meaty treat. Shark Reef Aquarium at the Mandalay Bay offers one of the finest predator based aquariums while educating you on the profound human effects on our oceans. If you're seeking some thrill and excitement, you can also opt for their amazing diving program that allows certified divers to dive with sharks, sea turtles, sawfish, rays, and schools of fish!
