Of course, we're not surprised because we know and love our Fort Fisher Aquarium. From the live alligator feeding to hands-on exploration of horseshoe crabs, snails, and hermit crabs, live diving exhibits, and up-close-and-personal encounters with the sharks in the big tank, the Fort Fisher Aquarium is an amazing place for discovery and exploration. It can also be a wonderfully peaceful place during some of the less busy hours. It is truly a destination for every age!
The location along the southernmost tip of Pleasure Island provides a spectacular backdrop for the Aquarium, quickly putting the exhibits in context.
The Travel Channel loves the Fort Fisher Aquarium for the "fear-factor moments" you'll experience here:
"Touch a live shark, discover North Carolina’s fiercest predator and come face-to-face with an alligator … if you dare."The Aquarium is open from 9am to 5pm daily and is only closed 3 days a year (Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day). That means it will be open all through Labor Day Weekend! Come and enjoy one of the Travel Channel's favorite Aquariums right here in our own backyard.
