Shark Reef

No resort is complete without exotic natural wonders. At Shark Reef you can see all kinds — sawfish, giant rays, endangered green sea turtles, piranha, jellyfish and the rare golden crocodile, to name a few. In all, there are over 2,000 animals in 1.6 million gallons of water.

Mission Statement

Shark Reef adheres to high standards of animal care, while providing an entertaining and educational experience, as well as contributing to education and research initiatives.


Shark Reef is steadfastly dedicated to conservation and preservation. Recycling facility water and the use of imitation coral are just two examples.


Shark Reef offers a comprehensive educational program for organized school groups of all ages, offering daily one-hour tours, as well as classroom sessions. For reservations or more information, please call 702-632-4555.

Dive with Sharks Program

Diving in the 1.3-million-gallon Shipwreck exhibit is the ultimate SCUBA experience. It's a lifetime's worth of encounters with rare sea creatures, all in one place, on one dive. Dive-certified Mandalay Bay and Annual Pass guests shouldn't pass on this invitation to dive with sharks, rays, sawfish, green sea turtles and schools of fish.
