By now you’ve all had a chance to meet the sea lions at Sea Lion Splash, but did you know that just across the way from their hang-out is Beneath the Sea?
Beneath the Sea: An Underwater Adventure is full of friendly creatures like our stingrays, horseshoe crabs and even a mermaid! We can’t say the sharks are necessarily friendly, but even they know how to entertain guests 🙂
Mermaid Melissa loves the ocean but she doesn’t mind hanging out at the Fair every now and again. Instead of swimming with killer whales and sharks, she spends time with you, showing off her beautiful mermaid fin and waving hello to everyone she meets.
Sharks play a major part at the Fair this year with not one, but two exhibits showcasing the ferocity of these big fellas.You can learn about the sharpness and size of shark teeth and just how they swim so quickly through the water. Of course, the real fun begins at the Live Shark Encounter. Take a seat and watch our diver plunge into the tank and swim, dance and play with these kings of the sea.
Between the sea lions, Mermaid Melissa, the sharks and the stingrays, we could easily spend an entire afternoon at the Beneath the Sea exhibit. There’s also a lot to learn about the ecosystem of the sea, like at Sanctuary Reef where you can learn about coral anatomy and biodiversity on the reef and our Traveling Sea Monster Exhibit where you can learn about the creatures in the darker, deeper depths of the ocean. As always at the Fair, so much to do, so little time…
