If you’ve dreamed of swimming alongside ocean predators this Shark Encounter at Ocean World is just for you! Experience the thrill of swimming alongside one of the most fascinating marine creatures—the nurse shark—at the only park on earth to offer this unique encounter. Hold, touch, feed and float with these underwater animals under the close supervision of trained staff. These magnificent creatures—some as long as 7-feet!—will impress you with their sandpaper-like skin and ease around humans. It’s a rare opportunity to meet nature on its own terms and sure to be an awe-inspiring experience.

The truly inspired can opt to combine the nurse shark encounter with a dolphin swim for a full day of underwater excitement. The most popular program at Ocean World, the dolphin swim puts you right up close to these playful marine mammals. Spend 30 minutes swimming, hugging, feeding and petting these incredible animlas and finish with a dorsal fin tow.
