“This is a very unique show and will really give the audience a special insight into the life of one of the ocean’s most feared predators,” said Giles Malone of Brevard Productions, who is organizing the family seafood festival and multi-genre music festival.

“We feel that this Shark Encounter Experience is a terrific addition to the Port Canaveral Seafood and Music festival as it will help our patrons better understand these magnificent creatures.​”

​To help bring ​awareness to the public about sharks, Commissioner Justice will dive deep into the Shark Encounter and interact with the “man eaters.”

Commissioner Justice knows a thing or two about the ocean.

As a retired rear admiral, he was the military aide to both President Bill Clinton and President George H.W. Bush, and also was the commanding officer of the Coast Guard ship that intercepted the first Cuban boat from the Mariel boatlift.

“If it helps bring pubic awareness about the ocean and its creatures then I am in for it,” said Commissioner Justice.
