Bruce and the Caribbean Coral Reef
At Disney’s EPCOT Attraction you can tour the Caribbean Coral Reef Aquarium at Bruce’s SeaBase.
Fun Disney tidbit about Bruce! Bruce is a great white shark in “Finding Nemo”. He is named after the villainous great white shark from Jaws. In the Jaws film, the shark has no given name; but the shark models used in the film were all named “Bruce” after director Steven Spielberg’s lawyer, Bruce Raymer, hence Bruce’s name.
At Bruce’s Seabase there is the Caribbean Coral Reef Aquarium where you can discover sea turtles, angelfish, dolphins, rays, sharks and more in the 5.7-million-gallon aquarium. This is one of the largest man-made ocean environments in the world. The Caribbean Coral Reef Aquarium is home to over 4,000 sea creatures representing over 60 species.
If catching a glimpse of this fascinating wonder intrigues you; than take a few days in the actual Caribbean! The Greater Caribbean is home to it’s own unique coral with 500-700 reef associated fish species. CaribbeanDays can arrange a villa stay for you so that you can actually have the opportunity to snorkel or scuba and see this wonder of color up close and personal.
If you choose your adventure between March and August, that is Turtle nesting season. You will be able to experience thousands of female sea turtles emerge from the ocean to lay their eggs. These are rare experiences for many. But at CaribbeanDays; we embrace making these adventures available to all!
