Description: Fatty's treats and tours is an exciting new business on the outer banks...
Fatty's treats and tours is an exciting new business on the outer banks! We have 24 flavors of Hershey's ice cream, milkshakes, smoothies, shaved ice, gifts, toys, and our always popular T-shirts with Fatty the seagull! If your looking for a way to burn off those calories or just a fun way to spend the day with the family Fattys is conveniently located on some of the best kayaking grounds on the entire outerbanks! Our tours take you on a trip through time to visit the very spot the English first landed in the new world. There are sting rays, and fish at play in the water, and egrets, pelecians, and heron to watch in the air! Fattys is an experience for everyone of all ages so come out and support locals, and have a great time!

We needed a late lunch after climbing the lighthouse and this was close and quick. The location is nothing to write home about and the food is overpriced because they know people will pay. In any case, the staff was great and we were taken care of more than anticipated. We had a sampling of items from a hot dog... More

Great kayak tour of the Sound with owner Jeff. Very relaxed and informative. We were contemplating renting on our own but didn't have much experience and would have never learned so much about the Island. Also added bonus that there is a great ice cream shop attached! Both are must-dos.

Great tour with Jeff the owner. Very knowledgeable about the area, history and wildlife. He will talk about what you are interested. Stopped the next day and got ice cream it was great. Everyone at Fattys was very friendly.

Had a wonderful ice cream treat at fatty's, then stayed at camp hatteras motel and just loved it! Close to the ocean and the sound. It was clean, beautiful and the owner is very friendly! The owners are father and son. Would highly recommend these places to everyone.

Jeff, the owner of Fatty's, served his ice cream at my daughter's wedding reception from his ice cream cart and was a huge hit! Everyone raved about how good the ice cream was but Jeff was also just such an upbeat, fun addition to the evening! He made sure that each guest felt special and was happy! He was also... More

We had a wonderful time! The owner, Jeff, himself was our ice cream scooper, and he was very nice. The ironic name is what drew us to the shop, but the amazing taste and owner are what will bring us back! So many flavors, you'll love it!

Fatty's deserves five stars for a number of reasons! #1 the French fires! We ate them on the beach with our hot dogs. Wonderful and a minutes walk from our umbrella. #2 Hershey's ice cream. #3 the shop has a cool, beachy vibe. #4 a wonderful sunset kayak tour. #5 Jeff! He is simply a pleasure. A smart young man....

Took a morning kayak tour with Jeff and we all loved the experience. Myself, my husband, and our 3 teenage daughters have never kayaked before, but it was a breeze. Jeff shared some local history and pointed out many different types of wildlife including a sting ray, skate, and a snake. But the best part was "parking" the kayaks and... More
