Scenic tour of Bald Head Creek. Not a lot to see in an hour, but fun overall. Guide was pleasant. Good for first-timers.

The entire staff is friendly and knowledgeable. We have taken several Fun Sail trips and Dan and Justin are fun, safe and educational as well. They don't "overdo" the educational part, but we always find out something new about the area. We also have taken several guided kayak tours and have seen amazing sights and also learned a few things... More

Staff was beyond accomadating, Sail coach ,Justin, took my 9 year old from novice to confidence and by the end of lessons, my son could rig the boat, sail it and break it down with minimal guidance and do it while smiling. Great... More

On recent offshore and creek... More

My wife, two children and I spent the last 7 days on Bald Head Island. This was our second trip to the island. We enjoyed our stay very much. The best activity was a 2 hour guided kayak tour through the marsh. Our tour guide, Alli, was very informative. After a quick lesson on how to operate the kayak (this... More

We've been going to BHI for 14 years and this May 2021be was the best since we were able to book a sail with Justin! My 14 YO son Will was encouraged to skipper and we had a fabulous time looking at the sealife/birds and even freighters of the BHIwaters. He gave us options for available routes and was a... More

We have made three birding boat trips with Dan on Bald Head, but today was the best. We were out over 2 hours and saw hundreds of white ibis, numerous American oyster catchers, dunlins, curlews, ruddy turnstones, herons, ospreys, and even a bald eagle. We cruised past Battery Island and through the marshes to Buzzard Bay, enjoying the scenery, peacefulness,... More

My husband and I made a trip out to Bald Head island this year, what a wonderful place to visit! We knew that we wanted to see the island from a kayak and what a great way to see it! Dan, our kayaking guide, was extremely knowledgable about the creeks as well as all of the wild life we saw.... More

Looking for something to do with three teenagers, we tried the 2 hours sailboat tour. Our young guide was friendly and knowledgeable. As soon as we left the marina, the kids were allowed to take the tiller as we headed out into the ocean. With a great breeze we were able to sail close to the wind with the wind... More
