Out-of-State School Groups

All preregistered out-of-state school groups, with 10 or more students in the group, receive a discount off normal admission. Upon arrival the Lead Teacher will make one payment for the group with cash, check, Visa or MasterCard.

The Aquarium requires that groups register at least two weeks in advance. This allows the Aquarium to schedule group visits in a timely manner so students have a more enjoyable experience. In order to help with “crowd control” and provide a more rewarding experience, visits are scheduled between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

With prior notice, a special marine life video, live animal program, field trip experience or other activity may be arranged. See school program and special activities indoors and outdoors for more details.

Non-registered groups are charged the standard admission rate. If the building is filled to capacity, a non-registered “drop-in” group may be asked to wait outside until more space is available.

To register your group, contact our Registrar Wendi Paramore at 252-475-2314, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
