Scott is so excited to teach everyone and anyone about sharks. He keeps it so interesting. He has excitement and great energy in his voice. He reminds me of Steve Irwin, the crocodile hunter. Very informative.

It will take the average person about 15 minutes to view the Shark Park. It is really a waste of time if you are coming to NSB just to see this exhibit.After 15 mins. for 10 bucks it will be time to move on.More

Raising Awareness, not fear is what we are about and really appreciate your review. Bet your Niece knows to look both ways before crossing the trough like The Boss she is. Hope she will share the technique with her friends. Mahalo Nui Loa, Scott
