Chatham Shark Center Reviews
We were in town for a family celebration, and wanted to find some things for the 2- and 3-year-old boys to do; they both love sharks so this was a hit! It's overall pretty small, but not very crowded.... more »
Small center with staff that can not answer questions about sharks. If a group of children are there, it can get very crowded. more »
Atlantic Shark Conservatory was really nice for a quick stop on the way out of the Cape. Our daughter really loves sharks. She even got to make a shark tooth necklace. Lots of interactive displays. Small but packed with info and smiling faces. Thank you for doing what you do, maybe next year a shark sightseeing trip is in order.
We visited this midday today (Sunday) for about an hour. It’s small but fun, and our group ranging in age from 3 to 68 all enjoyed it. The displays were interesting, staff was friendly, and the kids enjoyed getting in the shark diving cage, looking at the model of shark jaws, and trying the virtual reality headsets. Afterwards they found shark teeth outside in the supervised sandbox dig and had necklaces made from them (this activity is permitted for kids only not adults), while the adults played corn hole on the front lawn. Brief (as it’s only about two rooms inside) but fun!
