Welcome Back

We look forward to welcoming you to the North Carolina Aquariums!
 Your visit will be different than in the past.
Why? Health and safety — yours, ours and others. 
Following guidance from NCDHHS, and in accordance with the governor’s Executive Order 224, workers and volunteers at NCDNCR sites are wearing masks in indoor settings beginning Aug. 2, 2021. 
In addition to the requirement for all employees and given the continued threat of COVID-19 and variants of the virus, face masks are required for indoor areas of each aquarium. Visitors must secure their tickets online in advance, sellouts do happen
