My mom and I did another Kayak tour in Sept 2013. We came in May and loved it so much we wanted to come again. We are both overweight and do not have the greatest fitness level. We went out in seperate Kayaks with no problems. Went out on Monday morning when it was quiet and cool so we did... More

Highly recommend this tour. Hadley was a terrific guide, who was able to answer all of our questions about the area, including the wildlife. It was a very relaxing trip that lasted about 2 hours. A few of the animals we were able to see included a Kingfisher hunting for food, a Great Blue Heron catching flight, and a few... More

We did the kid kayak tour, and really enjoyed it. (The kids (elementary aged) did complain about the heat that day, but I still enjoyed it!) Our guide Liz was really great with the kids and very friendly and knew alot about the wildlife we were looking for. We caught a few things in the nets and put them in... More

Great trip with our 3 daughters (4,8,10). Lots of fun. Great setup, located right on the sound. We spent over an hour paddling and scooping up fish, shrimp, etc with nets.

We just finished our kid kayak tour with Anne and it was exactly what we wanted. Our three kids, 7, 10, and 12, did very well and were engaged the whole trip. Anne did a wonderful job of describing the wildlife in the sound and easily identified all of the critters that we scooped up in our fishing nets. The... More

We went as a family of four for a Sunset Kayak Tour - and it was awesome. The sound waters were tranquil despite the relative high wind conditions and the scenery was simply amazing. The Kayaking equipment was in tip-top shape - the Kayak's were Wilderness Systems Pongo 14 ft model. We were a little spoil for this excursion because... More

Coastal Explorations stand up paddling boarding lesson was great. Anne, my private guide, was knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna. She gave great instruction. It was less like going out with a guide and more like going out with a friend who happened to be really good at SUPing. I appreciated the laid back, but knowledgeable, approach. They had... More

We went on a sunrise kayak tour in the Currituck Sound. My husband has only kayaked once before and I have kayaked several times. The trip was really fun and easy (not to physically strenous!) We had a great time watching the sun rise over the sound. We saw a lot of wildlife including two bald eagles!! The guide was... More

Hadley was our guide and took our party of 4 out on a Sunset Cruise. It was money well spent. We have visited the Outer Banks for 9 years and have never taken a boating tour. Hadley did a fantastic job and showed us places like "Monkey Island" and other areas where wild horses frequent. I highly recommend Hadley and... More

My stand up paddleboard instructor and the entire team were so welcoming and patient. They have the skills and easy-going attitudes that take any worries out of your experience. (Will I fall? Will I look silly? How long will it take me to do this? Can I do this? How do I this? Can you show me again?) AND they... More
