Ray touch pool

The rays can decide whether they wish to interact with us or not

After wandering around the beautiful gardens of uShaka Sea World, make sure that you take the time to visit the Ray Touch Pool.

These specially designed pools afford both visitors and animals a unique experience.

The rays are free to swim around the pool and, if they are hungry or feel like a tickle, they will come up to the surface where our specially trained staff members will guide you on how to touch these gentle animals. Contrary to media accounts, rays are really gentle animals that will only try to defend themselves if they feel threatened.

The most important thing to remember is that we need to respect our animals. For this reason we provide choice to the rays about whether they would like to come to us or not.
