We went on a day trip to the aquarium during the COVID pandemic and we were impressed at how clean everything was. We went on a day where it wasn’t very busy, but we also found that they limit the number of people allowed in during the time, which was very nice. We hardly even passed other people, and when we did, it was at a safe distance. All of the animals seemed happy and well cared for, and everything was very informative and educational while being fun. The staff was also very friendly and attentive, as well as keeping their safe distance from patrons. Would definitely recommend taking a day out of your time to come by here and support them.

The exhibits were well maintained with lots and lots of fish. Their conservation efforts are to be admired too! Very enjoyable day, thank you Pine Knoll Aquarium.

Escaped to the beach for a weekend getaway and it was the perfect first stop. A little smaller compared to others we've been to but price is reflected and easily affordable for the budget conscious mind. Loved the shark tank and the added natural shipwrecks that were found near by. The aquarium is filled with information about the animals that live in North Carolina. The otters are easily the favorite, as they are fun to watch.

Woke up to a rainy day. Great way to stay dry and kill an hour or two. Go early in the morning and watch the workers feed the fish!

Very nice place. Just big enough to be a good aquarium and they always have something interesting going on so it doesn't get boring year after year. My only complaint is they need a better food area with air conditioning. If you want everyone to come and spend time enjoying the exhibits you need to understand they will get hungry and don't want to overheat while trying to eat.
