The “Waters of the Outer Banks” are waiting to be discovered. See an alligator, touch the stingrays, wonder at the playful river otters and marvel at sharks. The Sea Turtle Assistance and Rehabilitation (STAR) Center is undergoing renovations until Fall 2022. Guests can view the aquarium’s resident sea turtle in the Operation Sea Turtle Rescue gallery throughout the summer while STAR Center staff care for new and current patients behind-the-scenes.
