As Discovery Channel kicks off SHARK WEEK (Aug. 9 through Aug. 16), Adventure Aquarium reminds guests it is home to the largest collection of sharks on the East Coast and offers guests a multitude of shark-themed experiences and programming.
“Shark Week is one of our favorite times of the year, and there’s no better place to see these powerful predators up-close than Adventure Aquarium,” said Vince Nicoletti, Executive Director of Adventure Aquarium. “The opportunity to experience the largest collection of sharks on the East Coast and the only Great Hammerhead Shark on exhibit in the United States is really something to be excited about in New Jersey. Our hope is that guests learn to revere, not fear, these greatly misunderstood creatures.”
