Dangerous Reef

July 25th, 2012. Dangerous Reef – This is an awesome habitat and it is seen via a 330 foot long underwater tunnel that situates visitors on a glidepath (a moving walkway) that initially takes visitors past a Caribbean spiny lobster habitat. There is also the option to get off and walk, but I was told that at busy times of the day all visitors are forced to step onto the glidepath and remain there for the duration of the journey. There are sand tiger sharks, sandbar sharks, nurse sharks, blacktip reef sharks, green moray eels, green sea turtles, great barracudas, southern stingrays, tarpons, goliath grouper, cool-looking sawfish and at least 40 other species of fish that swim all around the tank and even near the sunken ship that is in the center. This exhibit is the highlight of the aquarium, it is 15 feet deep at its deepest point, and it features what must be one of the longer underwater aquarium tunnels in the world.
