Our multi-generational family went parasailing with Captain Derek and Sean. We had an amazing time! The guys have good work ethic and are very hospitable. Definitely recommend Nor’Banks if you are in the Outer Banks!
First time parasailing and it was a blast. Thank you Jamie and Sean for making this experience great! The Neely Family
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
Super Fun experience with 5 teens. Captain was attentive to speed and excitement levels that each rider was comfortable with. Everyone was exhausted and happy at the end! Highly recommend!
We visited Nor'Banks twice during our vacation to Duck, once for a pontoon boat rental, and once for jetskis. My two children loved the pontoon boat, and the staff let my young daughter go for a short (slow) jetski ride for her first time out. The staff is wonderful to interact with... they mix their expertise with plenty of humor for a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Thanks again and see you next year!
My wife, mother-in-law, and I took a 10:30 am Catamaran tour on a Saturday. Despite the heavy traffic getting there, we thoroughly enjoyed a beautiful and relaxing boat ride! Billy, our captain, was welcoming and very informative. I loved learning about sailing from him. Most of the time, we lounged on the front of the boat and took in the views. Billy navigated around the shallow sections of water and offered to anchor and let us swim. The staff helped my mother-in-law (replaced knee and hip and all!) to get around the boat safely and comfortably. We couldn't ask for more! Had a blast
Our 3rd time there and just as fun as the first time. Convenient activities, dining, and relaxation in one location. Thanks!
We had a great time on the tour! Original plan was to go out Friday but sound waters were very choppy and they easily moved us to Saturday at the last minute which resulted in much calmer waters. They put us on practically new machines that were smooth and fast!
Only thing I would have suggested different was to stop and stay for a few minutes up at the Whalehead Club.
I've used Nor'Banks every year for the past 5 or so and have never been disappointed. I've rented sailboats, jet skis, and kayaks and I've found their equipment safe and in good condition.
I decided on the last day of the OBX trip to go parasailing with my 8-year-old son and have my husband be an observer on the boat. The captain and his assistant (Derek and Sean if my memory serves me well) were very nice and put us at ease. It was a beautiful calm day. My son and I enjoyed the view and the whole experience. Thank you so much for your service and for the professional pictures that were taken. We will definitely be back.
These guys are truly great fun, the best choice in the northern OBX area, their experienced, funny and did I mention FUN!!!! Captain Derek and first mate Matt seriously made our flight over the Currituck the highlight of our OBX vacation. Have watched those lovely sails over the sound for years and finally got the gumption to go. Went for the 800 feet of line and a toe dip, figured "when in Rome" what a blast, great experience, only way to go. Love the entire vibe at Nor,Banks as well as the vibe these guys create on the boat. Thanks guys hope to see you again next year.
