The shark is still on the outside of the building and while it was a busy place for tourists, locals NEVER went there so the business closed over two (2) years ago.

All that is left is the shark's head and body entrance. I like to go in places like this and see what goes on, but not this one. There is another store up the street with lots of stuff to look at.

If you are looking for a unique souvenir or shark's tooth, this is the place to go. It is a large store with tons of merchandise. It also has shark feedings throughout the week, which can be fun, especially for kids.
