Shark Camp

  • Back Bay Science Center 600 Shellmaker Road Newport Beach, CA, 92660 United States (map)

The evening begins with a fascinating natural history lesson given by a local marine scientist. They will share some interesting facts about sharks, while attempting to dispell some of the more common myths about them, as well as answer questions about shark biology. Following the presentation, you will join California Department of Fish and Wildlife staff (as well as enthusiastic and experienced volunteers) on the dock to fish for several local species of sharks and rays commonly found in Upper Newport Bay, such as leopard sharks, smoothhound sharks, bat rays, and round stingrays. Participating youth will receive a certificate of participation as well as an Adventure patch.

Pre-registration for this is required; group or individual sign-ups are available. Each child (ages 7-15) must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets are $15 for each child and are non-refundable.
