Kid's Night Surf Fishing


Kid's Night Surf Fishing

All equipment and bait are provided. It is strongly recommended that a parent/guardian stay with child participants during the program at no additional cost.

Sea Turtle 101


Sea Turtle 101

We all love our turtles here on Bald Head Island, but how much do we know about them? What do sea turtles eat? Where do they go after they hatch? What is their shell called? In this program you can learn more about our beloved sea turtles that are out in the ocean. Please note that we are not a sea turtle rehabilitation center and do not have live sea turtles in our collection.
