Shark Adoption

Adventure Aquarium and our Fins for the Future conservation program are pleased to announce ADOPT-A-SHARK!  The only one of its kind. Through this new program, guests will learn about the Aquarium’s 26 Sharks, which includes Sand Tiger Sharks, Sandbar Sharks, and Nurse Sharks. Proceeds will be used to support these animals at Adventure Aquarium and to help sharks worldwide.


At this level guests will receive:

    • An official Certificate of Adoption for one of our 26 sharks
    • A bio/fact sheet with your shark’s name, history, identifying behaviors and personality traits
    • A color photo of your new “SHARK Chum”
    • Your very own "SHARK tooth"
    • A plush shark
