Floating ‘Jaws’ on the water screenings headed to a South Florida beach near you

There’s not better—or worse—way to enjoy the classic shark movie

Jaws on the Water

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, a “float-in” screening of Steven Spielberg’s 1975 blockbuster film Jaws is arriving soon to rekindle your irrational fear of the ocean.

Adventurous movie fans can soak up the classic shark flick, projected on an inflatable 20-foot-wide screen, from the comfort—or abject terror—of floating inner tubes at Whiskey Creek Hideout at Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park in Dania Beach on Friday, July 20.

Tickets for the 18-and-over event are $15 and include bounce house waterslide access, glow stick necklaces, and flotation device rental (although guests can bring their own if they choose). Movie goers can watch from the water or the beach and Whiskey Creek Hideout will offer food and drinks both soft and hard.

Days later—and just in time for the Discovery Channel’s annual Shark Week—“Jaws on the Water” will move 11 miles south to Oleta River State Park in North Miami Beach with three all-ages screenings slated for Thursday, July 26; Friday, July 28; and Saturday, July 29.

While tickets are still available for Oleta’s Thursday event, Friday and Saturday are unfortunately already sold out, according to its website.
