This is a nice little aquarium on the outer banks. It would probably be great for families with little kids. We have older teens and they did enjoy it but we were through the entire thing in about 2 hours. Sharks, jelly fish, turtles, a touch pool, just to name a few of the things we saw. Good for a half day outing.

We were very impressed with this aquarium. So much to see and well worth the cost to get in. We were doubly pleased to see they also had a dinosaur exhibit. The boys loved it and had a great time.

Nice aquarium! We enjoy it every year we visit the OBX. I love that it is a rehab/medical center for injured turtles at sea. The older gentleman in the turtle recovery center was VERY nice and knowledgeable. We were sad we didn't get to see the sea otters this time, they were not out. We also enjoy the dive show. We enjoyed the dinosaurs this trip. Will always go back.

This was a good place to visit with the kids. It was crowded, but things moved so the kids were able to see all the animals. It was clean and neat. The staff was well spoken and knowledgeable.

This is a nice aquarium for small children. It has a variety of fish and other vertebrae to see but it's not very big. The price was 12.95 for adults, 10.95 for kids. It is open from 9-5.
