Shark Dissections

Tourists and scholars alike can enjoy a dynamic audio visual presentation that has a powerful combination of aerials, slow pans, tight close-ups and superb imagery. Although the 26 minute presentation is designed to entertain, it is also educational, providing information on subjects such as the sensory biology of sharks and their role as top predators in the marine environment.  The show is followed by a shark dissection where you can see the internal anatomy of one of the ocean’s most feared predators. (A minimum of 15 people required for a shark dissection show to take place, please contact the office to confirm bookings).
