Ghost Crab
Astronomy 101
Classes - all ages!

The sun is down, but the beach is wide awake... with Ghost Crabs on the sand and wonder in the sky! Our ghost crab hunt and Astronomy 101 Class will get your kids off the couch and onto the beach after dark to hunt the mysterious critters that come out to play- and the twinkles that fill the sky. We will provide everything that you need for an action filled night that is guaranteed to bring some excitement into your vacation and family memories! 
Parents accompanying children are free!

Astronomy 101

Every Friday Night from 8:15 - 9: 15 PM from June 7 - August 23!

We know more about the surface of the moon than we do about the ocean! 

With this class we hope to shed some light on what's actually above us at night. Join us in learning about the solar system, other planets and galaxies, along with our Moon and tides. All you need is a blanket/towel to sit on the sand and a red flashlight, if you have one.

(We will have lights to share if you don’t have one!)

Get ready to have your perception of the night sky (and the affects it has on our ocean) completely change!

It is $20 per child and free for accompanying adult(s)! Like our Ghost Crab Adventure, we do ask that at least one adult stay with each family or group! 


 8:30-9:30 pm every Tuesday + Thursday from June 4 - August 29. (Contact us for off season options!)

Join us as the sun goes down in search of exciting nocturnal locals!

You and your children will be a key member of our research team helping us collect and compile data about ghost crabs on Topsail Island.

Together we will collect weather parameters as well as identify, measure, hold and release ghost crabs.. all while laughing along the way!

We will meet at the EMA building, 106 North Topsail Drive, Surf City and walk to the beach together!


We will meet at THE ema building, 106 North Topsail Drive, surf city, for both adventures!
