Are you a shark super fan? Then, this is an experience you can really sink your teeth into! Join one of our experts and dive into the underwater world of sharks, where you’ll discover just why sharks are a species to celebrate, not fear.

This all-access experience takes you “uncomfortably” close to the Aquarium’s shark collection, where you’ll learn how important these animals are to the health of our ocean. Tour exclusive behind-the-scenes areas, including our food prep kitchen, where you’ll see exactly what it takes to feed and care for the 11 different species of shark that call the Aquarium home.

Feeling brave? Venture out onto the shark catwalk, where our largest sharks swim silently just inches below. You’ll leave with a story to tell and a new appreciation for these incredible animals.
