Swim With Sharks At SeaWorld Orlando
SeaWorld Orlando guests can bravely climb into cages and interact with 50 sharks.
Participants donning wet suits can snorkel or scuba dive in the 125-foot-long underwater habitats to closely watch sand tigers, Atlantic and Pacific black tips and nurse sharks, sawfish and hundreds of tropical fish.
The two-hour program begins with a hands-on presentation covering shark physiology, conservation and many myths about sharks.
The program, called Sharks Deep Dive, costs $150 per person to scuba dive or $125 to snorkel. The price includes two-day park admission, a T-shirt and a shark information booklet.

Beach vacations tend to be more family friendly than other types of outings. A new survey by the Travel Industry Association found that 37 percent of beach vacations include at least one child.
By comparison, only 23 percent of travelers include a child on other types of trips.
The number of people taking beach trips was up 7 percent last year from 2000 to nearly 110 million "person trips," according to the trade association's poll.
The research also found travelers visiting beaches spent an average of $850 per trip, excluding transportation to their destination, compared with just $463 for overall vacationers.
