This activity was great to both get active but relax and see what the Currituck marshes were like. We were able to see a lot of great birds and jumping fish! Our guide was very informative and welcoming and taught us a lot about the ecosystem and history of the area. It was a great experience 1

I enjoyed a sunset tour with four friends and a guide from Coastal Explorations. One of us was brand new to kayaking and quite hesitant about trying it out at night for the first time. After ten minutes in the water she said, "I LOVE this!". Sunset is a wonderful time to do this, whether you are new or experienced.... More

My husband and I love the outdoors. We had an awesome time on the sound. The winds made the sound a little choppy, but what fun! Coastal expeditions will continue to get my business. Their employees have a cool-friendliness and easy going nature about them. Coastal expeditions has a great spot on the sound. It is a nice walk on... More

Let me tell you, if you're a beginner, this is the way to go. i am overweight, and over fifty, but the little inlet where we paddled was only six feet at its deepest so i felt very safe. Our guide was reassuring and wonderful... More

Huge thanks to Claire for a great first SUP experience for me (the kids had been before)! She made it very easy from the start. We cruised around the waterways while she shared her knowledge of the local ecology. And she was kind enough to deal with the two 12 year old cousins who bicker & banter like an old... More

Our group of five adults and four children had a fantastic time exploring the Currituck sound with Clair from Coastal Explorations! I found them after doing some research on Trip Advisor and all the reviews were right on. We had a few experienced kayakers and a few complete beginners and the tour was perfect for everyone. I thought the price... More

great kids kayak tour. It is the perfect length for a child, and there was a lot of interesting things to see. Great way to introduce your kid to kayaking.

My wife and I took the Sunset Kayaking Tour last Saturday and had a great experience. Our guide was knowlegable and friendly as we explored the sound. We got into the water quickly after a quick safety and kayaking training. We explored several unique wetland areas and saw lots of wildlife including Egrets, Herons, muscrats and snakes. Our guides knowledge... More
