The town it's in is beyond adorable. Also, I wish that i would have taken the kids to Roanoke Island while my nephew did his pirate adventure.

One of the smaller NC aquariums but a good stop for the family.  The sharks and moray eel are the highlights but ...

I agree with the other reviewers.  For kids this is a 5, for adults this is a 3.  Compared to other aquariums the tanks are much smaller and more limited, if you're used to big city big aquarium tanks you will be disappointed.  That said, the hands...

This is the second NC Aquarium I've visited and I feel like they are all over priced and small.  In fact, if they would combine the two I've been to so far, it would be a much better aquarium and a much better deal.  They need to work with Ripleys....they know how to make an aquarium.  Most of the fish here were hard to spot, small exhibits, and you would think the turtle exhibit was huge from their advertising but it's pretty small with only a couple of small turtles from the same species.  My kids watched the dive show in the big tank and no one could understand the diver due to a technical malfunction.  We also went to the "feed the stingrays" show which means the staff feed them while you watch.  Maybe i...

I would give this more of a 3.5 star, but I'm rounding up for kicks tonight. It's a decent aquarium. Nothing really awe-striking, but decent. It was a great escape from a rainy day, and I do love aquariums, so it was a easy choice to trek up here from Avon. They have some nice sharks, but I almost expected them to have more. Maybe I'm just shark greedy. ...

This is a nice little aquarium that focuses on the North Carolina coastal life, which is best for younger kids. The hands-on turtle rescue was a big hit with the 5 & 6 year old tha...

My sister shepherded 5 kids (ages 5-10) and 7 adults (including auntie Me) onto this voyage during family vacation and I thought it was the best kid activity ever! Face painting, dressup, boating around...
