    What to Expect
    Visit the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip anytime during its normal operating hours to see 14 different exhibits devoted to dangerous aquatic predators. 

    There are more than 100 sharks at Mandalay Bay — and 30 of them appear in the aquarium’s largest exhibit, the 1.3-million-gallon Shipwreck. Visitors can experience several species of sharks (Galapagos sharks, grey reef sharks and zebra sharks), plus endangered sea turtles, stingrays, sawfish and many other fish through a mesmerizing acrylic tunnel. 

    Other exhibits include the popular Touchpool, featuring stingrays and horseshoe crabs in a 2,500-gallon, interactive saltwater exhibit. Also, look for the rare golden crocodile, Komodo dragon, cichlids (one of the largest families of fishes), Burmese pythons (one of the five largest species of snakes in the world), Amazon predators (home to the giant arapaima, arrowana, pacu and freshwater stingrays), plus a Caribbean reef teeming with parrotfish, pufferfish and other beautiful tropical fish.

    There are also venomous fishes, moon jellies, piranhas, a giant Pacific octopus and much more.

    Visited with my family. It was a great way to spend a couple of hours. Lots of sharks :) I believe we were given a military discount.

    It’s a small aquarium. There are so many things to do in Vegas. This wasn’t the highlight of the trip. I think it’s a little overpriced for how small it is, but what in Vegas is not overpriced?? If you are staying in the hotel...More

    An incident beyond my control prevented us from visiting ‘Shark Tank’ on the date & the time specified on the tickets. The fine print says ‘this purchase was made through a third party, therefore, there can be NO changes made to the tickets. So unfortunately,...More

    No, you have to buy the polar journey ticket separate, but who knows they can change and make a combo. I suggest call them first
