My kids the same way... In his case it's a sensory thing. He hates sprinklers and water parks. Sometimes I can get him to go near water if I give him containers to fill up...because, ironically, he likes to play with water. As for the ocean...no way. Too splashy, he says. I don't force him with this kind of stuff because I imagine it would be rather traumatic for him. I just walk along the beach and come back by myself later. Have fun in Hatteras, it's awesome!
