    It is a nice smallish aquarium with some great displays. The sea otters are fun to watch and the variety of displays can entertain kids for a couple hours and likewise for adults interested in the sea

    Exhibits show NC aquatic life from mountains to sea. Don’t miss the eagles just outside and the salt marsh trail. Wonderful recreation of the U352 wreck complete with sand tiger sharks.

    Wonderful way to spend a day. Well worth the admission price. Wonderful small group tours, but reserve early on website they fill up fast! We did the otter tour last summer!

    Amazing and beautiful aquarium! Love visiting everything and just about an hour's worth of looking! You can pet stingrays and there is even a Dairy Queen stand outside!

    The otters and sharks were our kids' favorites and the FREE admission with our Zoo membership was mine!! Great aquarium...definitely worth seeing!

    The otters enjoy putting on a playful show to delight visitors of all ages. Be sure to also stop and see the sea turtles, including Nimbus, a unique little loggerhead named for his golden coloring.

    Great aquarium, the shipwreck tank was nice. The otters (when not sleeping) and loggerhead turtles were the highlights. $8 for an adult is not expensive and a good deal compare to others. Read more

    Look into the membership - its good not only for the aquarium, but for lots of zoos around the country. If you visit more than one zoo/aquarium a year, it might be worth it.

    A great park outside for the kids. Doesn’t look like much, but it’s great!

    $8/adults. $6/kids 3-12. Kids < 3 free. The otters are a blast for kids and the live dive at 2:30p followed by daily 3p feedings are great for everyone. Make sure to stop by before u leave the island

    Outside nature walk is a fun and relaxing break. But a great aquarium in general.

    You can get snacks for hangry children and adults at the Dairy Queen that's part of the building.

    Otters, sea turtles, sharks, and aquarium life abound at this expensive, but well done, aquarium. (Dieting? Beware the siren call of the Dairy Queen/Orange Julius at the exit door.)
