Happy Thanksgiving! Come share your family with ours this holiday season. We are open every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., except Thanksgiving (Nov. 23) and Christmas Day.
Toddler Time: It's learning that's structured just for little ones. Toddler Time allows youngsters, at no additional cost, to get to know aquatic animals through an age-appropriate lesson, stories, crafts and up-close encounters. Toddler Time is held most Wednesday mornings at 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
Santa by the Sea: Whispered wishes among the fishes bring holiday magic to the Aquarium’s Santa by the Sea on Dec. 9. Tickets will be sold the day of event, on-site only. Adults are not required to pay for an event ticket unless they desire to participate in activities. Tickets include a photo of each child 12 and under with Santa, plus crafts and other seasonal fun. For an additional fee, kids can hop on sleds and slide downhill in a snow-filled sledding area.
Holiday Camps: Registration for these popular winter camps is now open. Participants enjoy outdoor activities, animal interactions, discovery labs and behind-the-scenes tours. Limited spaces available, preregistration and payment required. Fee is $40 per day. Camps are 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 27 for grades 1-2; Dec. 28 for grades 3-4; Dec. 29 for grades 5-6.
Finally this month, be on the lookout soon for a special notice about #GivingTuesday — it's a great time to support the NC Aquariums with a tax-deductible gift.
