Although there are nine different species of hammerhead shark in the world, the great hammerhead is the biggest.
The nurse shark is a common inshore bottom-dwelling shark, found in tropical and subtropical waters, and its typical habitats are reefs, channels between mangrove islands and sand flats.
The sand tiger shark is a large, slow-moving shark notable for its jagged teeth and menacing appearance. This shark looks fierce as it slowly swims with its mouth open and needle-like teeth exposed.
The sandbar shark, also known as the brown shark, is one of the biggest coastal sharks in the world. It is the most common shark species swimming along the mid-Atlantic coast. Its most distinguishing characteristic is a taller than average first dorsal fin.
The silky shark is named for the smooth texture of its skin, which is made up of densely packed scales called dermal denticles. It is one of the most abundant sharks and can be found in tropical waters around the world.
Put on a wet suit and test the waters. Snorkel and come within inches of sandbar and sand tiger sharks. Then swim and feed dozens of playful stingrays, all in one visit!
Do you dare to cross? Shark Bridge, presented by Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey, is the longest rope suspension bridge of its kind, allowing you to walk just inches above sand tiger, sandbar and nurse sharks along with other animals.
Our 40-foot Shark Tunnel provides the experience of being completely surrounded by Shark Realm with dozens of sharks and 200 other animals swimming above and around you.
