This was a top highlight of our trip to the Outer Banks. The littles, teens, and adults had a blast chasing after the ghost crabs. Educational too- which is always a plus! Highly recommend.

We did this last year and this year we had friends with us at the beach so we decided to book a private hunt. It was soooo much fun. The kids and teens had a blast and so did the adults. No one wanted the hunt to end!!! It you have never done this it is a must at the OBX!!!!
