Winter has Arrived!

Winter on the Outer Banks of North Carolina is well... invigorating! Our coastal climate can result in pleasant evenings spent under the stars or bone chilling days spent inside.  The Ghost Crabs may be hibernating, but we still have activities like our Starry Night Live program and our popular Scavenger Hunt Packages delivered right to your door! Whatever you choose, we hope you'll be "Finding Fun in Search of Nature" with Ghost Crab Quest.
