Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay

3950 Las Vegas Blvd South, Las Vegas, Nevada

The Basics

Wander through a viewing tunnel at the Shark Reef Aquarium’s largest exhibit, a shipwreck surrounded by 1.3 million gallons (4.9 million liters) of water. In addition to sharks, you’ll see salt- and freshwater fish, as well as sea turtles, golden crocodiles, giant rays, and more. The touch pool is a favorite among younger visitors, while certified divers have the opportunity to scuba dive in the tanks.

Admission to the aquarium is included in some multi-attraction Las Vegas sightseeing passes.

Fantastic experience! It’s smaller than our local aquarium, but the decorations and building surroundings take this aquarium to another level. It’s absolutely gorgeous inside and very clean as well. We can’t wait to come back and bring our kids next time!

It's a good 30 minute walk through with lots to see and it moved well. I'm just really glad I paid your price instead of the $41 per adult at the door.

Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino
We loved our experience at the shark reef at Mandalay Bay. The reptiles and fish were awesome. The only negative thing was that there were so many people there. It was difficult to get up to the glass at some of the exhibits due to the amount of people. Overall, it was worth the time and money to go. We would totally recommend.

This is a trip you can make as long or short as you want. We enjoyed it got some great photos of the sharks, felt a little sad for the stingrays as I felt there tank was a little small. Would definitely recommend.
