Welcome to the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher! We are located in Kure Beach, NC at the mouth of the Cape Fear River. We are open 362 days a year, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM daily. Visitors enjoy The Waters of the Cape Fear, as they take a journey down the Cape Fear River from freshwater streams and swamps, to coastline habitats, to reefs and the open ocean.
This Field Guide explores the animals of our Fresh Water Building. Check out each exhibit and learn about the animals living at the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher!
