Open to Divers: Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay

As if you needed another reason to visit Vegas.

Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay plunges to new depths with its new Dive with Sharks program for hotel guests of Mandalay Bay and THEhotel. Thrill-seekers will experience a rush of adrenaline while diving side-by-side with dive guides and more than 30 sharks, including sandtiger, white tip and sandbar sharks, in a 1.3-million-gallon exhibit.

Dive with Sharks provides certified divers 18 years of age and older a rare chance to connect with these powerful creatures during an up-close educational program offering a deeper understanding of marine life. Throughout the four-hour experience, participants learn about shark health and behavior as well as Shark Reef Aquarium research projects that aid in the preservation of endangered species. To make the experience more intimate, the program is limited to two participants and one dive per day. Every dive is different as the sharks’ needs change daily.

“We are pleased to introduce the Dive with Sharks experience, which will bring our guests even closer to these magnificent predators,” said Adrienne Rowland, director of Shark Reef Aquarium. “This memorable adventure will appeal to anyone who loves underwater exploration and wants to learn more about these fascinating animals.”

Perhaps it's time to book a room at the Mandalay Bay.
