Aquarist for a Day

North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island, Aquarist for a Day

Experience what it is like to work as an Aquarist as you spend a few hours of your day working with our staff behind the scenes.  Prepare food for the box turtles, visit and interact with animal ambassadors, and prep food for the largest exhibit in the Aquarium.  Once meals are prepared, observe the fish and sharks feast in the 285,000-gallon Graveyard of the Atlantic exhibit.  Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and get a little "fishy."

Closed toe shoes and a bag lunch are required. Staff will meet participants at Admission area in front gate entrance.
