The "Waters of the Outer Banks" are waiting to be discovered. Marvel at the largest group of sharks in the state. Interact with scuba divers. See an alligator. Touch the stingrays. Wonder at the playful river otters. Witness the conservation efforts in the Sea Turtle Assistance and Rehabilitation (STAR) Center. Click here to learn more about the Aquarium!


"Really well laid out facility, and very fun for children, especially the sea turtle rescue and rehabilitation center! We went on a rainy Wednesday and it was extremely crowded but the staff handled the flow of people really well and the exhibits kept you moving with interest from spot to spot. Definitely worth the money considering we got four people in here for the price of one ticket at the Baltimore aquarium!"

"Super way to learn about the seashore we're visiting. A much needed break to see interesting & beautiful animals &learn about their habitats. The sea turtle rehab area was a big surprise! And who doesn't love sharks, turtles & otters!"
