This amazing man-made aquatic adventure enabled guests to swim, feed and snorkel with an array of marine species. The reefs and pools were home to rays, over 3,000 tropical fish, featured deep sections of coral and an enclosed shark tank.

AAT provided LSS design and engineering services, LSS equipment, waterproofing services, and helped construct about 1,000 square meters of simulated rockwork and coral features.
