At Adventure Aquarium, patrons can not only look at sharks in a tank, but be surrounded by them. The Shark Realm exhibit allows visitors access to a 40-foot shark tunnel that houses over 25 sharks, including nurse sharks, sand tiger sharks, and sandbar sharks all within a 550,000-gallon tank. Guests can also visit the Ocean Realm exhibit to watch as the featured 7-foot great hammerhead shark swims through a 760,000-gallon tank.
Of course, Adventure Aquarium also houses a wide variety of marine animals. Their two Nile hippos each weigh in at approximately 3,000 pounds, and their mouths can open up to four feet?enough to swallow most wedding cakes in a single bite. At the aquarium's Hippo Haven, visitors marvel at these hippos as they plunge into the water and swim right up to the glass. The Jules Verne Gallery, meanwhile, houses a Giant Pacific octopus. This cephalopod stretches out eight tentacles, each covered in some 280 suction cups.

Supplied with more than 30,000 gallons of seawater, Atlantic City Aquarium showcases more than 100 varieties of marine life. A plethora of abyssal exhibits take explorers into underwater lands, allowing them to peer into the natural habitats of endangered diamond-back terrapins and intimidating sharp-toothed piranhas, or have a glance at what a clown fish does when not constructing balloon plankton. A tank of the ocean's oddities offers a glimpse at unusual nautical fauna, such as the deadly stonefish, which exemplify nature's infinite variety and bizarre adaptations. On the aquarium's shores, the tropical rainforest and exotic animal show provide a genuine zoological experience completely free from high-heels and feather boas.
In the early 1900s, entrepreneurs were rapidly taking over the Atlantic shore in a race to please throngs of seafaring tourists. Despite this, Charles Jenkinson managed to acquire most of a quiet boardwalk on Point Pleasant Beach. But it didn't stay quiet for long?that sleepy beach soon boomed to life with a soda fountain, candy shop, dance hall, and mini-golf course. Even the Great Depression couldn't dampen Jenkinson's rapid expansion. By 1934, his empire had grown to include a bathhouse, a pavilion, and the entire beach. Jenkinson's Boardwalk continues to grow in both size and popularity with each passing year, drawing in tourists with its thrilling rides, sandy beaches, and sweet treats.
