Summertime is here and we are knee-deep in summer programs! One of our favorites is the Stand-Up Paddleboard program for children and adults. This is not your average paddleboard trip. You’ll explore Bogue Sound with your SUP instructor as nature guide. During this adventure you’ll learn about the many plants and animals that call the Theodore Roosevelt Natural Area their home, and receive expert paddleboarding instruction as well. Ages 6 and up.
When it gets too hot outside, cool down with a behind-the-scenes tour! We have five different tours to choose from. Aquarium at a Glance gives visitors a quick overview of the Aquarium. During Otter Antics you’ll help our otter keeper prepare activities for three river otters. Help feed the Living Shipwreck during Feeding Frenzy. Fees apply. Reserve now!
Kids’ Night Out is our newest program for children, and kids are having a blast! One child said, “It was like Night at the Museum, but at the Aquarium!” Children get the Aquarium to themselves, and following a pizza dinner they get a behind-the-scenes tour and face-to-face encounters with some amazing animals!
Don’t forget Shark Week, July 14-20! Seven days of toothy times spotlight the mysterious and misunderstood world of sharks. Enjoy shark-themed programs, feedings, activities and crafts.
