Shark Ray Bay Theater

Shark Ray Bay Theater provides an awe-inspiring window into the underwater world of the Surrounded By Sharks exhibit. At 385,000 gallons of saltwater, it’s the largest tank in the aquarium and is home to stingrays, sharks and a variety of species of schooling fish – all coexisting peacefully.

Three rare and unusual looking Shark Rays are some of the largest inhabitants in the exhibit. They love to glide past the window and rub their fins on the acrylic as if they are saying hello.

Be sure to be on the lookout for Denver, the mischievous 200 pound loggerhead sea turtle. His playful curiosity is endearing.
