I recently traveled to Bald Head Island for my second ever visit. This time with three great friends, none of whom had been here before. We rented a six passenger golf cart so we had lots of room for our cameras and we pretty much made a day of enjoying the island. The Conservancy was one place I had never... More

This place was awesome. Great classes for young and old, plus the best gift shop on the island. The atmosphere is just so laid back and cool. A great place to learn about all the wild life on the island and important research and preservation efforts being made. Don't miss going here.

I was very impressed with the dedication of the staff and interns. They do a lot of work preserving the ecosystem of the island and are very helpful. There are many different activities for kids as well as adults. Learning about the sea turtle nesting habits and egg hatching was fascinating. We had fun learning to catch crabs.

Great place to get out of the heat for awhile. I did buy a downvest with the BHI turtle conservation patch in the gift shop. Since... More

We have visited here many times over the years and there are always new activities for all ages. The summer programs are all great and our kids have loved them. This is a beautiful place and if you love nature, it's worth the trip!

All 7 of us (6 adults and one teen) went on the Nature Tour, which was led by a Conservancy Intern named Travis. He did a good job of introducing us to the flora and fauna of Bald Head Island, located off the coast of NC, south of Wilmington. We saw and learned about the changing topography of Cape Fear,...

We took a kayak tour today with some college interns. It was a great trip that included some interesting facts about the island and its wildlife. I highly recommend this activity.

We took the ferry over to Bald head island, thought it would be a day trip, but about half a day to visit. We rented the golf cart and toured the island at our leisure. We stopped at the Conservancy to see what was going on. We looked around at some of the fish and marine life in tanks, the... More
