Experience a whole new adventure as you explore the waters in and around the Outer Banks. Exhibits educate visitors as they journey through coastal freshwater habitats to find river otters, turtles, and American alligators. Conservation efforts can be witnessed first-hand in the Sea Turtle Assistance and Rehabilitation (STAR) Center. Wander into a sunken treasure ship as a variety of marine animals swim all around. Touch a stingray, wonder at sea jellies, and marvel at history. Watch sharks cruise by in the 285,000-gallon Graveyard of the Atlantic exhibit. Free daily programs as well as fee-based tours and outdoor adventures are offered throughout the year.
