Hatteras Island Ocean Center Reviews & Ratings
Love this place!! The director took us to the sound to seine for creatures. Our 3 year old grandson thoroughly enjoyed it. And there are no words to describe how happy it made us to see him learning about the importance of preserving the resources of this area. Go to the Ocean Center!
Such a lovely center with great staff! This is the perfect place to go on a relaxing day for a fun, educational experience. Very kid-friendly!
What an incredible place! There are a lot of students here from Hampden-Sydney college that provide you with excellent cremation and top-level engagement services especially for kids. stop by and try one of their programs if you're down here on vacation or just looking for something to do on a day that's too hot or too rainy they have some really incredible options. What a gift!
Quick easy way to get insights to the flora and fauna of the Outer Banks.
Nice people, clean and a nice public place.
