Get ready for a JAW-some good time at South Carolina Aquarium Shark Week, July 22-28. Visitors will find shark activities around every corner as they join Aquarium staff in celebrating the ocean’s often misunderstood apex predator.
Guests young and old will enjoy special dive shows and programs, expert speakers and photo opportunities—all about sharks. South Carolina Aquarium Shark Week activities include a shark scavenger hunt, color-your-own reusable bag (while supplies last), and a shark tooth dig.
A daily dive show in the 385,000 Great Ocean Tank at 3 p.m. will feature the Aquarium’s three new sand tiger sharks, and guests can wave a fin to say, “hello.” Throughout the week, guests can help name the sharks by “voting” for their favorite name(s) with spare change. The winning names will be announced on Sat., July 28. All proceeds will support shark care at the South Carolina Aquarium.
Shark Week activities are free with Aquarium admission or membership. More information about South Carolina Aquarium Shark Week daily programs and ongoing activities can be found at scaquarium.org/sharkweek.
