The World’s 1st & ONLY Shark Bridge at Newport Aquarium!!!

July 27th, 2015 by Amanda with no comments

Another thing on our summer bucket list complete today!  This is something you have to try!  We loved it! We are so lucky to have all these great attractions so close to home!


The  Shark Bridge at the Shark Tank Overlook gives a thrilling topside view of the Surrounded by Sharks exhibit. This 75-foot V-shaped rope bridge is the only one of its kind in North America and allows guests to walk just inches above nearly two dozen sharks, four exotic shark rays, two stingrays and more than 300 fish in one of the country’s largest open air tank displays.   The bridge gives a slight movement as you walk which adds to the excitement!! The bridge is very easy to walk across and gives you a unique perspective to the 385 gallon tank below.

The Shark Bridge attraction is included in the price of admission. This  is something that the whole family can enjoy but walking across the bridge is optional to all guests.
