The Nuance

Even you can stand on it freely. The borders are made of a formation of rocks.

Exploring the Shark Conservation
The best thing to do in such location is snorkeling. You only need a life vest and snorkeling gears. The water is shallow, so your kids can join you in the water. With an aqua camera, you are able to take some good pictures underwater. It is rare, isn’t it? You use sharks as the background of your photos!

Next, you can get closer to those sharks. As mentioned before, they are quite tame. You don’t need to be afraid of them. Due to their small size, even kids are allowed to play with them. However, you need to talk to the keeper first. He may tell you regarding some important procedures in approaching the sharks. Thus, it is better to follow his instructions prior to entering the water. Even though the sharks are tame, they are actually wild in nature.
