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.

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