Finding Fun in Search of Nature


In every season, we are excited to be

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."

Up Next... SUMMER!

Spring on the Outer Banks of North Carolina is well... invigorating! Our coastal climate can result in cool evenings spent under the stars or showery days spent inside.  The Sun's warmth coaxes Ghost Crabs out of hibernation, and sightings get more frequent. But if they don't show, we still have activities like our Starry Night Live program and our popular Scavenger Hunt Packages! Whatever you choose, we hope you'll be "Finding Fun in Search of Nature" with Ghost Crab Quest.
