Want to see live sharks during Shark Week? Visit Heal the Bay’s Santa Monica Pier Aquarium to check out three species of sharks on exhibit and the marine center’s shark nursery.
Special activities to honor the Elasmobranchii (learn what that is and how to pronounce it!) are planned all week long.
Watch the sharks eat on Friday afternoons or hear a special presentation about these misunderstood animals while they enjoy their Sunday dinner at 3:30 pm.
The Aquarium, at 1600 Ocean Front Walk, is open from 2 pm to 6 pm Tuesday through Friday, and weekends from 12:30 pm to 6 pm.
Admission is free for kids 12 and under with a paying adult; for all others, admission is $5 per person.
Santa Monica Pier Aquarium is located at 1600 Ocean Front Walk, underneath the Santa Monica Pier Bridge.
