They are actual wild sharks that are from the coast of Florida! As the diver interacts with the sharks, the announcer explains to the audience what the diver is doing and educates the audience about sharks in general.

If this is not exciting enough, then you can head over to the touch tank and actually touch these feared fish as well as other creatures from the sea.
