The Aquarium will be closed Christmas Day, but open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on all other days in December.
Help out the adoptable animals at the Outer Banks SPCA by donating to the Santa Paws Pet Supply Drive! Now through January 5, anyone donating a bag of pet food weighing seven pounds or more will receive one free same-day admission at the Aquarium! Other items are needed, including blankets, peroxide, cotton balls, dog and cat toys, and kitty litter. Donate any item and you can enter for a chance to win a painting created by the otters in our care!
Sea Turtles Day Camp, December 31, can help fill some of your child’s free time this season! Children ages 8-12 will learn about various turtle species and engage in lots of turtle-related activities. Fees apply.
The Aquarium is now a certified N.C. GreenTravel destination with the N.C. Department of Environmental Quality! This designates us among sites in the state that have achieved sustainability goals to reduce energy use, landfill waste and overall impact on the environment.
