While exploring Newport Aquarium's million gallons of fun, guests have the opportunity to touch a shark, play in the interactive frog bog and even pet a penguin during the Penguin Encounter. If you're daring, take a stroll across the Shark Bridge - the only suspension bridge in North America where guests can walk just inches above nearly two dozen sharks! This V-shaped rope bridge is 75-feet long and is suspended over the open water of the 385,000 gallon Surrounded by Sharks exhibit. Dive shows in the Surrounded By Sharks exhibit are excitement for the whole family as divers talk from underwater and even answer questions. Then, visit Shark Ray Bay to witness the four, extremely rare shark rays on display: Sweet Pea, Scooter, Sunshine and Spike. 

Join the fun in the Seahorses: Unbridled Fun exhibit, the most interactive seahorse exhibit in the country featuring 10 species of seahorses, sea dragons, trumpetfish, shrimpfish and pipefish. Plus, rare video, interactive sculptures, create-your-own-customized sea horse or sea dragon and more.
 
Like BIG stuff? Then don't miss Gator Alley featuring Mighty Mike: the 14-foot, 800-pound alligator who's the biggest, baddest gator outside of Florida! Next head over to visit Newport Aquarium mainstay Denver, the mischievous 200-pound loggerhead sea turtle with a three-foot-long shell.
