Shark Summer at Newport Aquarium
Sunday, May 27 to Sunday, July 8
It’s just not summer without Sharks! Discover why Newport Aquarium is the Shark Capital of the Midwest during Shark Summer!
See sharks like never before when you cross over the open waters of the Surrounded by Sharks exhibit on Shark Bridge.
Experience what it feels like to touch six different shark species in Shark Central - including our brand NEW Japanese Bullhead Sharks. See shark eggs up close in the new Shark Nursery.
Then, get nose-to-nose with sharks when they swim next to you and above you as you venture through more than 80 feet of acrylic tunnels.
Newport Aquarium is home to more than 15 shark species from oceans around the world. You’ll see dozens of sharks up-close including sand tigers, sand bars, black tips, nurse sharks, shark rays and more! All during #SharkSummer.
