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 NEW Shark Bridge (opening mid-April) - 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.
