Description

See sharks of all shapes and sizes (including some you may not even realize are sharks!) during Shark Week April 14 to 20. Among the April vacation week activities is the chance to touch live sharks at the new shark touch pool.

Opening on April 1, the shallow touch pool provides the opportunity to reach in and touch docile white-spotted bamboo and coral cat sharks as they swim by, while learning about conservation of all shark species. The pool houses six sharks, all one to three feet in length.

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, kids will learn about shark adaptations, diets, myths and conservation through interactive cart activities, games, presentations and crafts. Guests will be able to smell common scents as a shark would, participate in a shark scavenger hunt to learn about the various species at the aquarium, get an up-close look at shark teeth, fins and jaws, and play games to learn shark facts versus myths and threats sharks face in the wild.

Activities are free with aquarium admission.
