Really nice aquarium. Enjoyed reading the different plaques about certain sealife. Liked touching the little sting rays/ horseshoe crabs.
It was a wonderful experience. You see all the different types of sharks, and many other breeds. Highly recommended.
Small aquarium but spectacular. You see the sea life close up. One section the fish SWIM over you. This was the first time that I have been able to see shark teeth. All of the animals seem healthy. This aquarium is great for children but adults like it as well.
This was the highlight tour while in Vegas! Mandalay Bay Hotel is by far the best landscaped grounds on The Strip and the staff was wonderful. We went on a Wednesday afternoon and the line was short but the sea life was long. From the golden crocodile, to the glowing jelly fish and the incredible walk-under-the-sea through the curved glass tunnel, this was a simply amazing aquarium!
There are some negative reviews around, but we thought it was great. Yes it's not huge but I'm not sure what people expect. It's well done and it is impressive. My kids loved seeing all in here, but especially the sharks and jellyfish. And the discounted price using viator was excellent compared to the 'on the door' price. We went around 8pm and it was quite quiet and not packed
This tour was great and well worth our time. Loved this experience and getting to touch a stingray.
So much fun,be aware the shark reef is at the very very end of the hotel, got a lot of great pictures of fish and jellyfish,sharks- there is also a tidal pool.
It is a great place to see some great ocean and river Critters. If you show up at the right time, you can watch them feed the animals and not to mention the touch pool with Stingrays,horseshoe crabs. Great for all ages and you go at your own speed so you can watch the jellyfish or see the sharks in a shipwreck!!
My husband and I often check out aquariums in our travels. This was better than others in this country that we've seen. It wasn't huge, but what it had to show, it certainly did and in a great way! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!
When we went to the Shark Reef, there were not a lot of people. I hear it can get crowded. It was awesome because some trainers were answering questions about the caged creatures. The hands on sting ray/ horseshoe crab area was a HUGE hit! You can touch these things and learn a lot about them from the trained staff member that is there to answer any questions you may have. The shark display is neat, as you surround them and they surround you.
I had a great time! The different exhibits where really nice, petting the sting rays was the highlight of my day, I have never pet one before!! Had a great time!
