Can you believe Discovery Channel just wrapped it’s 29th annual Shark Week? It’s quickly become a highlight of summer, with brands including Southwest Airlines, Princess Cruises and Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo jumping at the opportunity to partner with the network’s most successful franchise.
But travelers in the U.S. who are fans of those adrenaline-inducing fishes can turn to a more mild form of excitement with these closer-to-home shark-themed travel packages:
Historic Martha’s Vineyard hotel Kelley House has teamed up with local brew Cisco Shark Tracker to bring the spirit of JAWS to summer vacationers. Established in 1742, Kelley House was the home base for filmmaker Steven Spielberg & his cast and crew when they filmed the iconic thriller.
Through July 28th, fans and movie buffs alike may spend a night or two in the very rooms the cast and crew occupied, along with a bucket of Cisco Shark Tracker Light Lager Beer, Murdick’s Fudge and a copy of Jaws. Based on double occupancy, rates start at $239 per night and reservations can be made online at www.kelley-house.com or by calling 800-225-6005.
It’s no secret that the shores of Northeast Florida’s Ponte Vedra Beach are know for an abundance of shark’s teeth. At the luxe Ponte Vedra Beach Resorts, little ones may comb the shores for the prized teeth and then turn their findings into long-lasting treasures with the Sharks & Crafts Package.
Including kiddo-friendly activities such as complimentary breakfast, a shark tooth hunt, shark tooth necklace and 2-hour bike rental, the Sharks & Crafts Package also includes a complimentary cocktail for adults – because it’s a vacation for them, too… right?! For more information & to book.
It seems as though anything is possible in Vegas, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that one can feed sharks.
At Mandalay Bay, guests who are daring enough may participate in a 2-hour interactive feeding, during which an Aquarist teaches what kind of food is used, how it’s prepared, how it’s fed & more. Tickets start at $80/person and can be purchased here.
