Australian Sea World's Shark Bay opens

Posted Wednesday, April 28, 2004 7:51 AM | Contributed by auscoasterman

Featuring a diverse range of sharks and rays, and an even more diverse range of reef fish, Shark Bay is the latest in Sea World's range of interactive and environmentally conscious animal exhibits. With everything from the recently popularised clown fish, right up to Tiger sharks, all in natural-esque sandy-bottom pools, Sea World has yet again given guests a unique insight into the marine world.

Is this park affiliated with the American Sea Worlds?

Jeff's avatar No, it isn't.

That's pretty good photography viewing the tanks from below. Very nice!

To elaborate on what Jeff said, the park, along with Warner Bros. Movie World and Wet'n'Wild Water World is co-owned by Village Roadshow (Australian film distribution company) and Warner Bros.

For those trying to compare this to the USA SeaWorld's Shark Encounter, if you couldn't tell from the photos, this is a much nicer attraction, and far more interesting.

Thanks, it's incredibly difficult to get the underwater shots to come out even halfway decent. The light is never good, and naturally you can't just turn on the flash, so you've really got to improvise and experiment (I got probably 100 duds before anything decent came out :)).
