Kayaking Views in the OBX

Kayaking offers the opportunity to see Outer Banks from a completely different perspective. From the water you can see tons of wildlife like sea bird, fish, and turtles. It’s also highly-recommended to try a guided sunset tour to see the vibrant colors of the OBX sky.

Ideal for Families Looking for Experiences Most Members Can Enjoy

Depending on where you go, most of the time kayaking is a quiet and peaceful endeavor that relatively easy to do. Sure it’s a slight workout, but it will get all the energy out of the younger family members, yet give an enjoyable experience for everyone. If this is your first time kayaking in Outer Banks, we recommend using a guided tour company to show you around. There are a lot of local vendors with the knowledge to explore all the hotspots while giving you a slight history lesson about the area.

Kayak Fishing

The Outer Banks is teeming with many different fish species, making it a perfect place for anglers looking to catch the big one. Fishing from a kayak does require a bit of multi-tasking and some skill. We also recommend using a local experienced vendor to show you the ropes, but more importantly where all the spots to cast your pole are. Just imagine floating on the calmer waters of OBX with nothing more than a kayak, tackle-box, a cooler, and beautiful scenery.
