Pine Knoll Shores Field Trips

Plan An Unforgetable Fieldtrip

Take your class on a journey “from North Carolina’s mountains to the sea.” The Aquarium is home to thousands of aquatic animals from across the state. In our galleries, explore a mountain waterfall and trout pool, a cypress swamp, river otters, jellyfish and our Living Shipwreck, holding more than 300,000 gallons of water, big sharks and an ocean of fishes. Enjoy two hands-on touch pools with your students. Our auditorium seats 150 for live animal presentations and other programs. For a nominal fee, sign your group up for a lab, an outdoor adventure or a special tour
