This summer you have the opportunity to look deeper into the hidden layers of the NC Aquarium down the road from Carolina Beach. The program will feature the traditional behind the scenes tour, which includes exploring animal quarantine, life support, food preparation, and access areas. The tour will then continue to the top of the Aquarium's largest exhibit, the Cape Fear Shoals, where participants will have the rare opportunity to view a live feeding of the 235,000 gallon tank from a newly created viewing deck. Sharks, stingrays, moray eels, spadefish, and other large fish call the exhibit home and will be swimming below during the tour. You will need to register for this 2 hour tour by calling 910-458-7468.
Scheduled dates are Monday July 5th, Wednesday July 7th, Friday July 9th, Monday July 12th and Friday July 16th.
