The Bonehenge Whale Center is located at Gallants Channel in Beaufort, North Carolina. The facility focuses on research, conservation, education, skeletal rearticulation and specimen collection of North Carolina cetaceans, including whales, dolphins and porpoise. The Center operates as a partnership between the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources and the Carolina Cay Maritime Foundation.
North Carolina’s Crystal Coast is a hotspot for cetacean due to the area’s location near ocean currents and the continental shelf, among other reasons. The whale center has documented 34 species of cetacean species off the coast. Visitors can see displays of beaked whale skeleton, whale teeth, baleen and whale oil.
The Bonehenge Whale Center is more of a workshop than a museum. It is not staffed on a regular basis; it’s all volunteer. Limited planned visits of masked and vaccinated people 12 years and older are being accepted.
