We rented a double kayak to head out to Cockspur Lighthouse, and Shane hooked us up with the "Happy Hour" special rather than charging us for an overnight rental since all we wanted to do was kayak out to the lighthouse and back, which was in the evening before it got dark. This was much appreciated, and the $40 rental... More

We (couple) were looking for kayak rental rather than a guided tour for a trip out to the Cockspur Lighthouse. We called the day before, and they let us know when we needed to be there to make sure we took advantage of low tide (the lighthouse island is totally submerged at high tide). We were thinking we would need... More

We have kayaked before so we were looking for a good rental place not a tour. The process was quick & we were on the water in no time. We were told to head to the lighthouse first before high tide. He gave us quite a few tips to make our experience easier. Encountered quite a few dolphins on the... More

My husband and I had a great experience with North Island Surf and Kayak. We were able to book their shorter 3 hour tour the day before and opted for the stand up paddle boards. Sadly, I can't remember our guides name (so sorry!) but he was knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about Tybee and the Cockspur Lighthouse,... More

I went on a kayak tour along with our guide and a few other people. We got much more than just paddling around in the ocean... visits to some islands, Eco and historical information of the area and the wildlife. A great time was had by all.

We went to North Island Kayak looking to rent paddle boards but when staff learned we had our dogs with us they recommended renting peek-a-boo kayaks and taking the dogs over to Little Tybee Island where our dogs could run free. We followed their advice and boy was it worth it! The dogs had a blast and so did we.... More

We had an excellent overall experience. We had 3 adults and two kids in our group. We had originally reserved 3 paddle boards and a double kayak. Once we showed up they helped us get exactly what we needed which turned out to be 2 single kayaks and 2 paddle boards. There was no charge for the change in reservation.... More

Just rented two double kayaks here. Only had a few hours to spend on the water due to a stormy morning the day before. We are so happy we decided to go out even for a short time. We saw over 30 dolphin. Some were within 10 feet of our boats. As we were short on time we did paddle... More

This was our first time kayaking and we had a great time! We enjoyed hearing about the different roles played by the sea life and its importance to the ecosystem. We really enjoyed hearing and seeing this side of Tybee.
