BLUEMiND Outer Banks Trip Planner  

The ocean feeds our soul in ways that are difficult to pinpoint. We know that the ocean makes us healthier, happier, reduces stress and brings us peace-much the same as meditation. Everyone that knows the Outer Banks, loves it for the ocean, the beach, the waves, the wildlife, and everything that makes it so unique. This is the idea behind BLUEMiND.

Below are seven different activities perfect for those that want a BLUEMiND experience.


DAY 1: HIT THE BEACH

Well known for our beautiful pristine beaches, it's only natural that a full day on the beach is part of the agenda. Start your Outer Banks BLUEMiND getaway right - with a little fun in the sun. 


DAY 2: DOLPHIN TOUR

Join our research team on an unparalleled nature tour. You’ll see Atlantic bottlenose dolphins and learn about their feeding and social behavior. You can observe the diverse and fascinating wildlife of the Outer Banks including ospreys, pelicans and many others.

Throughout your trip, our expert naturalists will provide a fascinating and in-depth commentary on the local ecology and history of this unique area. And if you like, you can participate in the ongoing study of our “brothers of the sea.”
