Gulfarium Salutes Shark Week, July 6-12


This week is the Discovery Channel's shark week, which has many of our guests buzzing about these toothy marine creatures. While the movie, Jaws II, was filmed in and around Destin, Florida, sharks are really misunderstood predators of the sea.

Therefore, the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park is celebrating these fascinating creatures with educational sessions, themed activities, specials and discounts all week long.  During the week kids can enjoy shark feeding demonstrations, kids crafts, and a park-wide scavenger hunt. The Gulfarium is also offering a discount of $5 off its thrilling shark and stingray snorkel encounter (use Promo Code: SHARKWEEK to apply discount online). Learn more or purchase tickets at www.gulfarium.com.

As for sharks in the wild, they are present in the Gulf of Mexico. And while there is a greater chance that you’ll be struck by lightning than bitten by a shark, it is important to be sensible when swimming in the Gulf. Here’s some tips:

1. Swim during daylight hours; Don’t swim after dusk or early morning when a shark’s vision may impaired due to low lighting. 

2. Don’t swim near fisherman or wear bait in the water while fishing.

3. Don’t wear sparkly jewelry or items that can reflect sunlight and look like the scales of fish.

4. Don’t swim if you have open wounds or are bleeding.

5. Swim within the first sandbar and always be mindful of your surroundings

Our planet needs sharks. A healthy shark population is vital to the Earth’s ecology. Tune in to the Discovery Channel for exciting shark stories then visit the Gulfarium to get up close and personal.
