AZA reciprocal admission will be available for advance tickets.
NC Zoo members must follow the advance ticketing guidelines.

The N.C. Aquariums remain closed to the public. However, all aspects of our website are operating as usual. The earliest we expect to reopen is July, if North Carolina moves into Phase 3. Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head is open, and initial hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
