Observing Sea Life Can Boost Your Mood
As we discuss healthy thoughts and moods in 2024, there are many experiences we can have at North Carolina Aquariums. Beginning the new year with adventures is always a winner, especially witnessing sea life. Staff at the North Carolina Aquariums at Fort Fisher, Pine Knoll Shores, and Roanoke Island have a collective resolution to dive into in 2024. They will be tackling projects, enhancing animal care, and making sure the Aquariums sparkle and shine. While the team works on-site, the Aquariums will close to the public Monday, Jan. 29-Friday, Feb. 2.
The Aquariums will reopen on Saturday, February 3rd at 9 a.m. And don’t forget advance tickets are required to visit the Aquariums. Visitors can plan and reserve their tickets at Explore Our Attractions. Each site has some priority tasks on the list, including large, multi-day projects that the teams can tackle only while the Aquariums are closed.
During the year, Aquariums will welcome about 1.2 million visitors!
Including thousands of students, and the support of hundreds of volunteers. Staff look forward to enhancing the excellence in visitor experience and engagement that is the hallmark of a trip to one of the Aquariums. Have you heard of Blue Health? The term is increasingly being used around the world as experts research blue spaces. For example, a beach vacation can calm your nerves because the water has therapeutic qualities. Many studies are proving that water rejuvenates the body and mind, reducing stress and anxiety.
