Nurse sharks may be imposing, but once know more about them, you fall in love. This species of shark is completely harmless, as it feeds on mollusks and some small marine species that come from the bottom of the sea.

Sit on a shallow-depth platform where you can interact and watch these sharks closely. At all times you will be accompanied by the trainers, who will tell you interesting facts about their behavior, food and importance in marine life. Then, it's time to put on the snorkel gear and swim with the sharks. Watch them in their natural environment, moving peacefully.
