Watch the raw fury of sharks feeding from the safety of our observation decks by joining a guided tour of the park with a marine scientist, or relax with never ending ocean views at Ocean Park Cafe. We are famous for our fine quality coffee, delicious cake and fresh seafood meals!

A great way to get close to the animals of shark bay and the coffee isn't bad too! Tours start on the half hour and are an hour well spent

The aquarium is set up to display local fish and educate people about them. The tour was reasonably relaxed, and enjoyable. Kids under 4 are free which was great.
