    My DS7 is obsessed with sharks so we will be swimming with the sharks at TL can he war a life vest in the tank he can swim but the idea of the snorkel worries him he always manages to get water in it and I thought the vest might help thanks

    Your son is welcome to wear a life vest in the Shark Reef attraction at Typhoon Lagoon. There are vest available to borrow right there at no charge.

    Guests are not required to use a snorkel at Shark Reef. The snorkel masks provided there (disinfected after each use) do cover the eyes and nose. None of my kids could get the hang of the snorkel breathing thing. (And the nose-covering mask made one of them feel claustrophobic.) They ended up going through the shark tank with regular eyes-only swim googles that we had with us. The kids were able to see the fish just fine with these. When they needed to breathe, they would stick their faces out of the water for a second and then duck back down to see the sea life. If you felt comfortable keeping your eyes open in the water, then you really wouldn't need any sort of equipment at all.

    My children LOVED Shark Reef and go through several times whenever we're at Typhoon Lagoon. It is a unique and amazing way to get introduced to the wonders of the deep in a controlled setting.

    I'm sure your shark loving son will adore it!
