SeaWorld Orlando Sights

The Grand Reef

  • Zoo/Aquarium

Fodor's Review

You can follow thousands of butterfly fish, angelfish, parrot fish, and a few dozen other species as you snorkel through this authentic-looking coral reef. Stingrays sail slowly and gracefully past, and fish come within touching distance, though when you reach out to them they scatter in nanoseconds. There's even an artificial shipwreck with panels of Plexiglas in its hull that reveal a separate pool filled with barracudas and sharks. (Thankfully, they're out of reach.)

Even though you're hundreds of miles from the Caribbean, this is wonderful, accessible substitute. And remember: the brighter the day, the more brilliant the underwater colors. For people with disabilities: Guests with mobility issues who can readily maneuver themselves with limited assistance can experience the reef. It's easy to monitor crowds; come when they're light. It's suitable for all ages, but teens and adults enjoy it most.
