You can also have a face-to-face experience with exquisite sea creatures such as the dolphin, seal and snorkel lagoon. The uShaka Ocean Walker allows you to walk on the floor of the open ocean exhibit where you can gaze at the huge fish and rays as they mill slowly around you.

Then there is the Xpanda Shark Dive where you can immerse yourself into a world of living sharks.
