Whalehead Club

Thing To Do Whalehead Club

The Whalehead Club is a large, 21,000 sq. ft. mansion in Corolla meant to accommodate the wealthy Knights family when they visited the Outer Banks on hunting trips. To learn more about the history of the Whalehead Club, you can read our blog article about its roots here.

Situated on 39 acres of land in Corolla Park along the Currituck Sound, Whalehead has been opened to the public every week day, 9 am - 4 pm, and is an affordable day trip option for the whole family (even the most expensive tickets are only $7 each).

If you're looking to get something a bit more spine-tingling, Whalehead also offers Legends, Lore and Ghost Tours on Wednesdays at 7 pm during the summer. at $15 per ticket.

If you're visiting during the winter, don't worry, you haven't been forgotten either: Whalehead also offers a Candlelight Christmas Tour from late November until Christmas Day, though these tickets are limited and run out quickly, so be sure to reserve your spot early (tickets are $20 each).

But the house is not the only thing to enjoy in Corolla Park. Make sure to bring along your picnic basket, kayak, kite, and/or hiking boots and enjoy a full day out in nature!
