  • Ocracoke Ghost Story Beach Fires ~ We also work with Ocracoke Beach Fires for Thursday night Ghost Stories around the Campfire on the beach (May 20-August 29). For more details, click this link. This is a separate business, and we don’t handle the reservations . . . we just tell ya the tales!

This is what a previous participant had to say about her family’s experience: “We loved the stories and the history. It was the highlight of our visit to Ocracoke Island!”
