Learn all that you can about marine life in the Mexican Caribbean when you visit the Interactive Aquarium. Many guests even go so far as to sign up for programs that allow them to swim with dolphins and feed the sharks.

Dolphin lovers will not want to miss this opportunity to get to know and swim with the magnificent animals. Luckily, even if you do not want to take the plunge with dolphins, Interactive Aquariums offers a "dry" program as well, called the "Educational Program". However, if you want to be pushed through the water by a dolphin, then the "Dolphin Swim" session is for you. Though, perhaps you want to play with some of the more dangerous residents of the aquarium. Interactive Aquarium also gives you the opportunity to put on diving gear and enter a metal cage into a tank of hungry sharks. If that was not enough, you are the one who will be feeding them in this once in a lifetime 'Feed a Shark" attraction.
