Stingray and Shark Adventure Ages 7-14
Explore the beaches along the Grand Strand in search of elusive sharks teeth and mermaid purses (Shark Egg Cases) as sharks swim just outside the breakers. After searching the beach we will go on a shark and stingray watch at Springmaid Pier. While there, we will enjoy our lunch among the sea gulls and fisherman. Once back at the aquarium you will become a shark expert while learning about them through an interactive program including a shark dissection. After dinner, you will get a personalized behind the scenes tour of the aquarium, make a shark necklace, enjoy a snack and a movie. As bedtime approaches, we will set up camp in our shark tunnel as sharks swim overhead. Awake the next morning to breakfast in the Feeding Frenzy. After breakfast, you will enter the watery world of Friendship Flats in the aquarium as you experience a one on one encounter swimming with Stingrays and Bonnethead Sharks. If time allows in the afternoon, we may return to the ocean for another beach exploration. All meals are included.
