Finding Fun in Search of Nature

Winter is Here...

but the activities have not stopped.

Experience the wonders of the night with Ghost Crab Quest.  

We are an ecotourism company based on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  Amazed by the beauty of these fragile barrier islands, Ghost Crab Quest is committed to sharing and exploring its wonders day and night.  While the star of the show is the mighty Atlantic Ghost Crab (Ocypode quadrata), we offer educational activities that will introduce our guests to astronomy, bird watching, outrageous ocean creatures and pirate history.  We love what we do, and hope you join us in "Finding Fun in Search of Nature."

Winter Is Here!

Winter weather on the Outer Banks of North Carolina can be unpredictable.  Between blustery winds and high surf, we often get warm days and crystal clear nights. While the Ghost Crabs are hibernating, the stars, planets and migrating birds are out in full effect.  There's no better way to experience the natural beauty of Winter than spending a night, or day, with Ghost Crab Quest.  

Since we are not catching Ghost Crabs... 

Let our experienced, passionate Guides lead you through a relaxing tour of the night sky during our STARRY NIGHT LIVE astronomy program.  Or have them customize an exhilarating day seeing birds along our beautiful coastline with OUTER BANKS BIRD TOURS. Or enjoy our new SCAVENGER HUNTS delivered right to you!  


Whatever the choice, we look forward "Finding Fun in Search of Nature," with You!
