My husband I were on a weekend getaway to Tybee and knew we wanted to rent something to paddle in. After scouring the internet for every option in Tybee and Savannah, we settled on North Island. What originally drew us there was the professional website and the laid-back, local way they described their business. My husband and I HATE to... More

Recently, the hubs and I vacationed on Tybee Island (first visit) and having never been in a kayak before, decided to each rent one for the afternoon. AMAZING! It wasn't very hard to get the hang of it and we were off. In one inlet, two dolphins swam toward us and came within 10 yards of kayaks!!! We explored the... More

On the last day of our holiday in Tybee, I arranged for my three sons (18, 12 and 12) to have surfing lessons with Shane. They had a great time. They'd never surfed before, but in next to no time were up and running and by the end of the two hours looked very accomplished. It was definitely the highlight... More

My husband and I rented a tandem kayak and had an absolutely unforgettable day. The rental process was efficient, folks were super-friendly and helpful, parking in the lot was free. We paddled out and immediately saw Cockspur Lighthouse, and soon afterwards the dolphin sightings began and did not end! We saw dozens of dolphins that day, many within just a... More

I love the ocean and I have traveled to Florida, Cozumel, Grand Cayman, etc, etc. Tybee Island, GA beats all of them thanks to North Island Surf & Kayak. For well under $100 you can rent a tandem kayak for the entire day. The launching dock is right there. Main attractions include Cockspur Lighthouse, a really awesome lighthouse built in... More

North Island Surf and Kayak will give you the purest experience of Tybee Island and Georgia's barrier islands that you can get. I have been renting kayaks from this business for six years now, and I can't stand to let a summer go by without another trip out to Cockspur lighthouse or Tybee's North Beach. North Island's prices are excellent... More

On our visit to Tybee Island I wanted to let my children experience an activity that they would not have an opportunity to do at home. We decided on surf lessons. I tried contacting another business on Tybee to schedule lessons twice before our trip and never received a return call or text. Upon arrival at Tybee my kids said... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our day courtesy of North Island Surf and Kayak. The staff was extremely friendly and efficient. The equipment was exactly what we expected and in good repair. The location is very convenient to Savannah Historical District Hotels with free parking at the rental site. We had a lovely day of kayaking, seeing dozens of dolphins while paddling... More
