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. Visit Shark Ray Bay to witness the four, extremely rare shark rays on display: Sweet Pea, Scooter, Sunshine and Spike. Dive shows in the Surrounded By Sharks exhibit are excitement for the whole family as divers talk from underwater and even answer questions. 

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 the NEW Turtle Canyon exhibit to see Bravo: a 600+ pound, 84-year-old Galapagos tortoise and the largest turtle in the Midwest. Joining Bravo: a 118-pound alligator snapping turtle named Thunder and Newport Aquarium mainstay Denver, the mischievous 200-pound loggerhead sea turtle with a three-foot-long shell.
