“Shark swim is our new opportunity for our guest to have the chance to get in the water with our sharks,” said Denise Swider, assistant curator of the aquarium. “We always let our guests get close to the animals. That’s what Discovery Cove is about. Now we just wanted to take it that step further.”
There are five types of sharks that you swim freely with: Pacific blacktip, reef whitetip, nurse shark, zebra shark, and a spotted wobbegong.
