Description : The NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher is now offering an Extended Behind the Scenes tour that takes participants deeper into the hidden layers of the Aquarium.

The program features 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. The 2 hour tour is for ages 8 and up, children 8 to 14 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The fee is $20.00 for ages 13 and up, and $18.00 for ages 8-12. Aquarium admission is included.
