Aquarium of Niagara Explorer’s Reef

‹ Portfolio

It’s not every day you get the opportunity to design a Shark and Ray Touch Tank. This unique exhibit allows patrons to have a hands-on, teaching and learning experience with a collection of marine life including sharks, stingrays, hermit crabs, sea urchins, and more.

With glass “portholes” offering guests an exciting, rare look below the surface, the exhibit was designed to look like a true Florida mangrove, complete with sequenced lighting design that mimics the natural day/night light cycles these animals are accustomed to. Serving as an immersive attraction for Niagara Falls residents and visitors, the naturalistic environment featured at Explorer’s Reef is sure to leave people with an unforgettable experience.
