New Programs for 2020
VIRTUAL ONLINE Programs
Virtual Behind-The-Scenes tours
Choose between two virtual behind-the-scenes tours: Avian ambassadors and sea turtle conservation.
Learn all about the Aquarium avian ambassadors as Aquarium staff virtually guide some of our birds through their daily training and enrichment activities.
Join Aquarium staff for a interactive virtual behind the scenes experience focused on sea turtle conservation and rehabilitation.
Virtual Animal Encounters
Private Virtual Animal Cameos are a casual and fun way to learn about our animal ambassadors at the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores.
These private 20-minute virtual cameos allow for only your group to ask questions while seeing select animal ambassadors! Aquarium staff members can even record the encounter so that you can replay this experience again! Times are available 7 days a week from 8:00 - 12:00 & 1:00 -4:00.
Whale of a workout
Looking for a way to learn while working off some of that extra energy? Join us to learn how some of the Aquarium's awesome animals use their body to move, capture prey, avoid a predator, or defend themselves. Break a sweat by mimicking their actions and discover what it takes to move like an ocean dweller, land-lover, or feathered friend. Cool down and relax by meeting one of the Aquarium's Animal Ambassadors!
Turtle Trek and Fishing
