April 2020

We love our amazing staff! During any temporary closure at Jennette’s Pier and the North Carolina Aquariums, critical staff members provide crucial support for animals in our care.

The Pier has three large aquariums that display the various types of fish found along the Outer Banks. Feeding them daily, along with building-maintenance projects and deep-cleaning, keeps us busy.

While Jennette’s and the three North Carolina Aquariums are closed, you can keep up with everyone’s current status and updates related to COVID-19 on a special page posted here.

During this time of change, we will continue to provide updates on our websites and via social media channels. We miss all of you and can’t wait to get back to normal operations and fishing. Keep an eye on the oceanfront with our pier cams.

So of course we’re moving ahead with planning for this season. There is so much to share and we are working on some great interactive experiences.

Look for educational videos, fun online engagements and more on social media. Find postings from all four locations on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube!

Hope we “sea” ya this summer!
