16-Foot-Long Shark In A Gift Shop

The "Shark Attack" gift shop is closed, gone out of business.

[David Kamada, 02/19/2014]

The store closed in November 2013 after 25 years in business. The 16-foot-long stuffed shark, Georgette, is now in the Ocean Institute at nearby Dana Point -- the centerpiece of its "Sustainable Seas" exhibit.

Shark. 16-Foot-Long Shark In A Gift Shop

Redondo Beach pier - last shop on right fork. Sign for shop says: "Home of the great white shark exhibit." Price $1.50. Georgette is in a dark room in back. Nice lesson about sharks in general and Georgette in specific. You have to ask at the front counter to see Georgette. Worth a look if you are in the area.
