We’d love to hear about your experience!How to do it? and a quick link to Google Reviews
Insanely friendly, helpful, and descriptive. The kayaking briefing was very explanatory, especially for never doing it before. We had an AMAZING time kayaking on the sound and they even told us our barriers, which the area was huge! If you’re staying in the Duck area, highly recommend coming to this place, it’s worth the money! 🙂
Awesome tour. Non stop fun with a few stops for information sharing.
Cam was awesome. Had us all over and covered a lot of water from Duck to Corolla.
Without question one of the best tours I've taken. Can't wait to do again.
If you are looking for some water adventures while you're in town visiting take a minute to read this review. First of all I will say that I called five or six places asking questions about their run space for jet skis and some of the other activities they have like if the kayaks were top seaters or enclosed and the catamaran skill set required etc. Every question was answered thoroughly and with a positive attitude. So we booked kayaks for 2 hours and when we checked in she said if we ended up not using the full two hours and we only went for an hour and said that they would be able to refund our money because I wasn't sure if we would want an hour or two. It's very rare for a company to proactively tell you that they will give you money back if you don't end up using the full time planned. Usually it's a use-it-or-lose-it kind of scenario. Then we asked about the Sunset Cruise for the catamaran and they said that at least four people have to be signed up for the boat to go out and there was just two of us. She said that she had another couple on Friday that we're looking to go out but we were leaving on Thursday so Wednesday was our only option. She said well let me call them and see if they want to come today and then the four of you could go out tonight. The offer to even think about going out of her way to do that for us to be able to go out on the boat was so thoughtful and only the kind of thing that is usually done by an owner and not typically by an employee. This young girl was so thoughtful and when we got back from our kayak trip she told us that she had gotten ahold of the couple and they were coming tonight so we were able to do the catamaran for Wednesday. I would have never thought to ask her if there was anybody else on standby and I'm so glad you suggested it. The boat was gorgeous plenty of space to lounge around and the captain and his first mate where a ball of fun. Just happy to be out there taking us around to see something they had no doubt seen a thousand times that month but still made us feel like our trip was special. I couldn't believe that this place had so many reviews that were five stars because to be honest no one ever gets 5 stars that many times but this place totally deserves it everyone start to finish was an absolute Joy checking in on us making sure we were having a good time seeing if there was anything that we could possibly need. I go to the Outer Banks every summer and I am so happy to say that I will not have to search for who I'm going to be renting my equipment through because this is the place and I will come back again and again and again, its a well-oiled machine! thank you for the experience we had an awesome time.
A must go.
That's all have to say. Me, my daughter and her friend went sailing and the boat was in great shape.
Went parasailing today with a large group. Derek and Sean took us out and they were awesome. It was very peaceful. They're both great and in control at all times and make sure that all on onboard have great time. We will be back for sure. Don't mess around with other places, Nor'Banks is the only place to go.
