Reef Edge

Next, get right up close to a magical assortment of creatures in our Reef Edge exhibit.

Sharks

Sharks are the most misunderstood creatures in the Ocean. Far from being predators, they face extinction from being preyed upon by humans. Each year over 70 million sharks die needlessly due to Shark Finning. Help by donating to the SEA LIFE Trust in support of their shark conservation projects.

Blacktip Reef Sharks

Blacktip Reef Sharks are found in warm coastal waters around the world! Black Tips are among the most popular sharks inhabiting the tropical coral reefs of the Indian and Pacific Oceans, because Black Tip Reef Sharks prefer shallow, inshore waters. They are typical in appearance of how humans imagine a shark to look, and can be seen at our big ocean tank!

Feed a Shark!

You can now have the opportunity to get closer than ever before to our amazing sharks with a VIP Shark Feeding Experience!
