Easy bike ride from the Gulf State Park. Don't forget the pirate ship in the back.

Walk into a Giant Open-Mouthed Shark

A very impressive shark mouth entrance to a Gulf Shores souvenir shop... Items inside are a little pricey, but worth a look. At the back entrance to the store is a large 3-masted pirate ship attached to the building.

Shark Souvenir Shop

I am a resident of Gulf Shores and the name of the "Shark Souvenir Shop" is Souvenir City. It has many touristy beach items such as a wide variety of sea shells, pet hermit crabs and habitats, shark jaws and alligator heads and much much more. After you walk in the shark's mouth at the entrance, kids can look through windows into the shark's belly and see what he has eaten.
