The Shark Lab (Mini Aquarium) in Mossel Bay, Western Cape
Situated near the waters edge in the popular holiday destination of Mossel Bay, The Shark Lab is a small aquarium and research facility which aims to teach people about the interesting creatures of the sea.
The Shark Lab is a fantastic venue to take a deeper look into the curious and fascinating lives of sharks. The Lab even provides an opportunity to swim with their two beautiful resident Hound Sharks! The aquarium is very small, so this would be the highlight of visit and it is an activity that come highly recommended. Sharks have survived for over 400 million without having to change much. Human interference however, has dwindled the population significantly despite knowing that the presence of sharks in our oceans is essential to the underwater ecosystem. The Shark Lab hopes to inspire a positive difference to shark communities.
The kids will love the tropical fish displays and if you not brave enough to swim with the Kings of the Deep Blue, then your highlight of the visit will no doubt include a conversation with Indigo, the super clever Octopus!
No need to book, again this is a small and not so well-known spot, and the entrance fee is reasonable so bring along the whole family!
