Shark Shallows- Now Open!
Touch sharks and rays at your fingertips as you experience Shark Shallows. The first of its kind in the region, this exhibit enables you to reach out and feel the skin of bonnethead sharks, cownose rays and southern stingrays.
Overlooking the Charleston Harbor from the Riverside Terrace, Shark Shallows is the largest enhancement to the guest experience since the Aquarium opened its doors in 2000. Shark Shallows’ impressive 20,000-gallon touch tank features a deep area where the animals can swim uninterrupted and a shallow area where guests can discover how sharks and rays feel.
