EXPLORE OUR MAYAN TEMPLE SHARK HABITAT




Located at Paradise Island’s Mayan Temple, resorts guests can see Great Hammerhead Sharks Sphyrna mokarran, Smalltooth Sawfish Pristis pectinata, Barracudas, Blacknose Sharks Carcharhinus acronotus, Caribbean reef sharks Carcharhinus perezi and Nurse sharks Ginglymostoma cirratum by taking an exhilarating inner tube ride through a clear underwater tube – or from the dry comfort of the surrounding deck via panoramic windows. Vacationers can also sign-up to "Walk with the Sharks" underwater with specially designed underwater helmets. It’s a rare habitat that’s not to be missed.

Access to all Atlantis marine habitats and Aquaventure Waterpark are FREE for guests staying at the resort. Passes may be purchased by day visitors, but availability is limited – and may be closed – during periods of high resort occupancy.

INTERESTING FACTS

Hammerhead Sharks

The mallet-shaped head of the hammerhead enhances its ability to find prey. Sensory systems on the head are spread over a large surface area. The eyes are located far apart, which improves its field of vision; jelly-filled pores called the ampullae of Lorenzini detect the weak magnetic field produced by fish; and the olfactory system aids in an acute sense of smell.

Special Saw Sensors

Sawfish use a sixth sense to help them in their hunt for fish. They stalk and locate fish using pores primarily concentrated on the upper sides of their saws, which detect the electrical field of their prey. Once their quarry is found, sawfish use their long, tooth-lined rostrum, or saw, to slash prey into pieces. What a weapon!

Toothy Terrors

Better for the barracuda to eat its victims! Barracudas rely on surprise and speed, swimming up to 36 mph in pursuit of their prey. They will swallow small catch whole, such as herring and anchovies, and use their razor-sharp teeth to tear larger quarry into pieces, such as snappers and groupers.
