You can always expect vacationing on Cape Cod to be full of wonder and excitement. There is no shortage of things in this region of New England to provide you with a remarkable experience. As you are trying to decide just how to spend your time while you’re here, there is one attraction that is sure to stand out, and for good reason. Located in the magnetic beachside town of Chatham, the Chatham Shark Center is one of the most captivating venues you can visit. It is entirely devoted to exploring the underwater world of these intriguing sea creatures.

Why You’ll Love Visiting Chatham Shark Center

Whether you fear them or appreciate the important role they play in the ocean’s ecosystem, there is no denying the mesmerizing effect sharks have on just about everyone. It’s this role that the Chatham Shark Center focuses on teaching visitors about. The 2,000-square foot facility provides an up-close-and-personal look at the area’s great white shark population through informational presentations, interactive exhibits, and a lifelike shark head display. It also pays homage to Frank Mundus, who is known for catching the world’s biggest great white shark in 1986. The chair he was sitting in when he made his world-famous catch is showcased at the Shark Center.

Though there are shark sightings from time to time in the waters off Cape Cod, it’s likely a visit to Chatham Shark Center is the best way to satisfy your curiosity. There’s also a gift shop where you can find the perfect souvenir to remember your visit or bring back to the shark lovers in your life.
