Great experience - my kids each rode a jet ski and I relaxed and waited. Friendly, knowledgeable staff and clean facilities. Equipment was in great shape. Thanks for a great... read more afternoon.
The jet ski tour was just amazing! Experience of a lifetime. Also, best place on OBX for sailing (cats/flying Scots)

Rented two Hobie cats over the weekend. The boats are well maintained and rigged for fun. The staff makes the launch and landing smooth and easy. The sound is a... read more ideal place to sail.
We did a trio parasailing with our 12 year old daughter on a 800 ft line. Perfect conditions and our guides Sean and Matt were super professional and made sure... read more to take all the right precautions while ensuring a great time by all.
Absolutely a must do event in the outer banks.
My family and I enjoyed 2h on the Currituck Sound in a flying scot during our OBX vacation. We looked specifically for a cloudy day with a moderate to... read more fresh breeze. The checking process was efficient and the pier crew set up the boat to our wishes. They also asked appropriate questions given that we wanted to sail overpowered with an unreefed mainsail, even though the gusts occasionally exceeded 20kts. The pier crew had an assistant in the water, which we haven’t experienced at other rental locations. This could be helpful for less experienced parties not used to sail smoothly all the way to a pier. Except for a loose tiller extension attachment, which was easily fixed, the boat was in excellent condition. This includes the sails, which had better shapes than those I’ve seen at other locations.
Staff is very professional, friendly and helpful. A storm blew in and ended our rental early and there was no issues on prorating a refund. The grounds are... read more well maintained and very comfortable for hanging out by the waters edge. Next time I am in OBX I will be sure to stop in again and rent for some water sports fun...
I highly recommend the waverunner tour! You get to see the sound from Duck to Corolla and then to Grandy on the mainland. Our guide Ken was super,... read more he made it fun and interesting by stopping along the way to explain the history of the area. We saw a bald eagle in flight, a hunting lodge accessible only by boat, and several islands and duck blinds you’d never see any other way. Ken even sent us pics and a nice message the next day. It may seem a bit pricey but well worth it, in my opinion. Best part of our vacation!!!
We had a group of teens, pre-teens, and adults in August 2019, some of whom had parasailed previously and some never before. We booked online - the process was... read more easy and check in was easy. We had Captain Derek and Sean who were GREAT! Very funny and entertaining and very experienced. They incorporated safety seamlessly (no small feat on a windy day with choppy waters and teenagers who predictably don't listen well). They got fantastic pictures of all of us and the sim card with all of our pics was $25 (a bargain for three families). Overall an awesome experience!
This was our 3rd time coming here to tube and it did not disappoint. Our captain, Sean, was amazing!
Very nice lay out. The staff was helpful and gracious. The process to rent Jet Skis was smooth. They didn't try to over charge even though they... read more are basically the only game in town. Definitely the spot to go and we will return every year...More
