Exciting news! The NC Aquariums are now open! We have missed all of you and can't wait to have you back to visit. To help protect our guests and staff, capacity will be reduced and admission will be sold online only, with tickets designated for specific hours of the day. We are working hard to get ready for your visit, and will have more information to share soon so stand by!

All Aquarium memberships will be extended the number of months the Aquariums were closed and will be applied automatically to your membership. You will receive an email confirmation.

You can still order your Angler’s Club and Own-A-Fish Memberships today! We will immediately start processing your plaques.
