The staff of Oak Island Experience is dedicated to providing our guests with a memorable stay on our beautiful island. Whether that be relaxing on the beach, surfing the waves or adventuring the marsh, we've got you covered. Since we make a business off the scenic beauty and thriving wildlife of Oak Island, we do our best to give back whenever we can. Our business makes an effort to have a symbiotic relationship with our marine environment, by advocating community clean ups, as well as making an effort to get any trash we see on our excursions. We as a company hope to promote respect and appreciation for our coastal environment, with intentions to preserve and protect it for further generations.
How we help
RECLAIMED MARINE DEBRIS
We do our best to keep our wildlife clean and healthy, so we can preserve it for generations to come. One way we do this is by reclaiming and repurposing marine debris, like wood, tires, metal, traps, and buckets. The tires we remove are used as anchors for our volleyball and tetherball posts. The wood we find is cut into pieces for our beach jenga and yardzee. We hold pride in recycling these marine debris out of the environment, and finding a way for them to supply people with happiness and fun; while keeping them out of a landfill. We hope you see our beach games as monuments promoting marine conservation.
