Quote Fun & Learning

We've taken a few educational boat trips over the years but yours was by far the best all-around experience. The highlight had to be the breadth of sea life we pulled up and got a chance to investigate, interact with and, of course, learn about."

Sand Tiger Shark Fun Fact

Looks closely at the sand tiger sharks in the "Ocean Beyond the Sound" exhibit. Their snout and jaws are covered in tiny holes. These are receptors for the sharks' "sixth sense" – their ability to detect bioelectric fields emitted by other animals (including potential prey).

Based on the book by Peter Benchley and directed by Stephen Spielberg, “Jaws,” of course, was the first modern blockbuster, quickly becoming the highest-grossing movie ever (at the time). One writer said “Jaws” wasn’t just a movie, “it was an event, and its success changed forever the way Hollywood marketed films.”
