Shark Encounter at Coral World Ocean Park
Tour Participation Requirements
Special Medical Restriction
Sharks have long been misunderstood (thanks a lot, Jaws), but they aren't the bloodthirsty boat-swallowers shown in the movies. Of the roughly 75 attacks recorded each year, most are the result of sharks mistaking humans for similar-sized prey like seals or dolphins.
On this adventure, you'll get to personally meet some of these much-feared creatures, and see that they can be quite docile. As they swim around you, take a look at their graceful bodies cutting through the water effortlessly. Your apprehension slowly melts away as you realize that these animals aren't interested in making a snack out of you. Which is good considering part of the proceeds of this tour go towards shark conservation.
The odds are in your favor
Sharks really aren't the fearsome predators that the movies make them out to be. In the United States, lightning strikes kill an average of 37 people each year. Shark attacks, on the other hand, are responsible for about one fatality every two years. Even going to the bathroom might be more dangerous than a shark encounter: 30,000 to 40,000 Americans are injured by a toilet every year, while sharks are responsible for less than 30 injuries.
