The outdoor water-sluice experience produces big smiles and big finds each day. One recent hunter discovered a fish vertebrae and multiple sharks teeth, including a partial extinct megalodon tooth.
Shark Tooth Creek offers visitors of all ages the opportunity to purchase a bucket of sifting sand for $10. The sand is provided by a local supplier. Found fossils become yours to keep.
Proceeds from Shark Tooth Creek are collected by the NC Aquarium Society and are used to support Aquarium exhibits and educational programs. Shark Tooth Creek is open 9 to 5 daily during the summer, weather permitting.
