Surround yourself with prehistoric predators

Gasp in awe as you stand just inches from a deadly predator that has stalked the seas since before dinosaurs roamed the earth… Thanks to the world’s largest underwater viewing tunnel, you can be totally safe whilst completely surrounded by moray eels, lion fish, puffer fish, swordfish, barracudas and sharks. Get a rare up close look at these fearsome creatures as they swim all around you.
