What a truly fun and unique experience! All the work was organized by the company and I just had hide clues where the list said, then sit back and watch! The boys had a great time finding clues and being pirates! The treasure chest was more than excepted and really a perfect activity for days you want to take a break and stay inside or the weather is bad. This can be done in a little more than an hour or stretched out to take more time depending on kids' age and how you want to manage it....super flexible and fun! Highly recommend!

We had the pirate themed scavenger hunt for our daughters 7th birthday. A week later and she is still raving about it! Highly recommend for a visiting family or locals alike. Jim could not have made the experience easier! Highly recommend!

We recently spent a bit over an hour with Derek our ghost crab guide. I had our 4 kids, and an initially reluctant husband, and we all had such a great time. It’s an easy excursion, they come to you, it’s informative, and really unique to the local area. It was such a fun way to spend the night. And Derek was so kind and encouraging with the kids. I highly recommend this! (And it was very Covid friendly as well:)

We get you close to the Crabs but can still keep the social distancing requirement in our group tours. We take pride in offering a safe and fun activity and we are so happy you enjoyed your evening. I'll be sure Derek sees this review! Thank you very much!

The kids (3 and 8) LOVED this activity! They were expert ghost crab hunters by the end. The guide/instructor was amazing and was great with the kids, helping to make sure they each had multiple opportunities to catch their own crabs. Highly recommend!

Thank you so much for the compliments! Maybe the kiddos have a Summer job in their future? Haha. Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you next time you're on the Outer Banks.
