Pine Knoll Shores Tours and Adventures

Tours & Adventures


For a small extra fee, see what’s on the other side of the exhibits with a behind-the-scenes tour or enjoy other special experiences around the Aquarium. In spring, summer and fall, enjoy kayaking and other outdoor activities.

The Aquarium also offers special programs for Scout troops and school groups. If you can’t bring your class or group to the Aquarium, our sea turtles, horseshoe crabs and other critters can hit the road in our traveling Outreach programs. Invite an alligator or other special guest to your child’s birthday party at the Aquarium. Or let your kids bunk down for the night in view of a sunken submarine and 400-pound sharks as they “Sleep with the Fishes.”
