  • It is more than an aquarium. There are exhibits showing you what lives in our waters and our marshes. They always have an interactive program and make sure you are there for the feeding of the sharks....  more »
  • This aquarium is awesome! Not too big, not too small and it has a big outdoor area where kids can play and explore. We will definitely be going back any time we are in the OBX.  more »

  • This aquarium was perfect for a rainy day activity. The jellyfish tanks were fascinating and talking to the divers as they cleaned the shark tank was interesting. While we were there one set of bathrooms was closed because they needed more space for rescued turtles. You can tour the turtle hospital and they have an interactive area for your kids to play turtle doctor on some old turtle shells.
  • Our kids love it at this aquarium. There is so much to do and see. A lot of interaction with animals and a place for them to play and adventure outside. My oldest son loves the giant shark they have in there last exhibit before the gift shop.
  • I volunteered at the Sea Turtle Assistance and Rehabilitation center at the aquarium for a while and really enjoyed it. Friendly and knowledgeable staff that are doing an excellent job in marine conservation. Thanks for all of your hard work!
  • We spent an entire winter's day exploring the aquarium with three kids two, and under, and we didn't want to leave. The hospital is doing such great work. Seeing the over 100 turtles that they were saving from cold stunning was really amazing. There is so much to see, and do here. We are going to buy a membership so that when we come back for summer break, we can explore again.
  • Very fun and educational experience. You can see sea turtles being rehabilitated and even play dr on their hands on simulation. Plenty of fun for the price.
