The North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores takes visitors on a tour of North Carolina's amazing aquatic life - ''from the mountains to the sea.'' The journey is arranged in five galleries: Mountain, Piedmont, Coastal Plain, Tidal Waters and Ocean. Among the 40 innovative exhibits are re-created shipwrecks that showcase the diverse marine life attracted to these sunken vessels. The 306,000-gallon Living Shipwreck display in the Ocean Gallery features a 3/4-size replica of a German U-boat that was sunk off Cape Lookout in World War II. The Queen Anne's Revenge duplicates the 18th century artifacts in Beaufort Inlet thought to be the wreckage of the pirate Blackbeard's flagship.

Also popular: playful river otters, a roaring mountain waterfall, sand tiger sharks and sea turtle hatchlings. Touch pools allow personal contact with stingrays, whelks and other creatures. The Aquarium offers an array of activities and field trips, and has facilities for weddings, celebrations and meetings. Visitors also will find a large gift shop and a snack bar.
Hours: 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily. Closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

Admission is $8 for ages 13-61; $7 for ages 62 and up; $6 for ages 3-12; no charge for ages 2 and under and North Carolina Aquarium Society members. Advance sales of 50 or more tickets are discounted 25%. A 15% discount is available for groups of 10 or more. Call for more information. Admission fees are the same at all North Carolina Aquariums.

Review Guidelines
Basic Review Guidelines:

Your review should focus on specific aspects of the business you are reviewing. Do not simply state you liked or disliked the business - be specific.

The best reviews include not only whether you liked or disliked a business' products or service, but also why.


Do not mention competing company names in your reviews. Focus on the company you are reviewing, and if you wish, leave a review about the other companies on their directory listings.

Do not comment on other reviews - respect their position and write your own, but do not argue with others.

Do not use profanity or post spiteful remarks.

Do not write a review that is less than 50 words in length. The goal of a review is to share your experiences with a particular company - very short reviews do not accomplish this.

Do not post phone numbers, email addresses or URLs.

Do not post inflammatory reviews - stop and put yourself in the shoes of the owner of the business you are posting about.

Do not post many reviews about one business. Doing this will cause all of your reviews to be deleted.

Remember, you are responsible for your words.

No Reviews Yet. Luckily for you, entering a review takes very little time!
