Birthdays & Sleepovers

Birthday at the Aquarium

Come celebrate your child’s special day at the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores!  Recommended for ages 3-12. Our classic parties are the perfect way to say "happy birthday" with animals, crafts, and fun! The Party package is priced at $225 for up to 20 total participants.  A fee of $12 will be issued for each additional participant. The party includes an Aquarium classroom for a two-hour party, a live reptile encounter, reusable water bottles for the children, and a self-guided tour of the Aquarium.
