I rented a Hobie Wave sailboat. This was my first time on one of these. The little Hobie Wave is great for 1-3 people. I was able to pilot the boat fine by myself. Last year, I rented a Hobie Cat. I also include instruction...More
We had another great day of sailing. The staff was super helpful and friendly. This is a highlight of our beach trip every time!
Nor'Banks was great! We rented a wave runner for an hour and had a blast. At first I was a little concerned that we would be restricted as to where we could go on the sound. However, once we got out there, there was plenty...More
The crew was absolutely spectacular and we had the best time learned a lot and had fun.
We will be doing again next time!
Hobie Getaway: This was a great low stakes way to try one out. The staff are knowledgeable and gave me advice on the craft's counterintuitive tacking technique. They also graciously owned a defect, when a rudder broke. They motored out and got us back to shore, then provided options for another boat and a partial refund. They were short staffed due to covid and had other rescues going on, but maintained a high standard for service nonetheless. A thorough safety check on the boats might have prevented the situation, but it was a highly unusual thing to break and posed no serious danger.
Captain Sean did an incredible job ensuring our safety and making us feel comfortable during our Parasailing adventure with our two girls (ages 7 & 8). One of our daughters has Autism and the captain and crew was extremely patient with her. The crew took excellent photos which I could not attach because the file is too large to be uploaded here. We can’t wait to return next year!
It was a beautiful evening for a cruise on the Currituck Sound. Capt. Billy and his crew are excellent sailors, and extremely customer focused. I would recommend this to everyone.
I've rented a catamaran and SUPs from Nor'Banks over several years and also taken lessons. Have always had a fantastic experience. Their equipment is in great shape (or they remedy the situation right away and compensate you with plenty of extra time); and their staff...More
My family and I rented 2 pontoons here. Between the 2 pontoons we had 27 people. This place could not have been more laidback and easy to work with for such a large group. They may have been short staffed but they were prepared and...More
If you like waverunners and sale boats, this is the place to be. The staff is friendly and helpful. They have a good selection of Flying Scott’s and Hobie Cats. All of the equipment appears to be in good working order. A staff member is...More
I went parasailing for my first time and had a blast! I am scared of heights, but Sean and Clayton were great and making me feel confident. They were professional and knowledgeable and clearly have a passion for what they do. While we were taking the boat out and back they gave us suggestions on things to do in Duck and the Outer Banks. They suggested we do a jetskiing tour and we ended up renting a jet ski through Nor'Banks and having a blast on that too! I highly recommend this company. The picture package is definitely worth it if you want it. They give you all the pictures they take on an SD card. They took 96 pictures!
