Had a nice 2 hour sail up and down the sound. Very light winds but a good little hobbie getaway. They did evening just as you would want. Give them a try. Fun water sports place with quality equipment and friendly staff.

We rented wave runners and the staff was very friendly. The kids had problems getting started and they gave us extra time so we could get out money's worth. Great people and a great time.

We had a great time tubing with Nor Banks in Duck. The conditions were perfect and Cap't Dan was the bomb!

Our family of 6 rented a Waverunner for an hour. Plans was to swap out kids to take turns. Helpful staff, fun and safety focused. Channel to the open area to ride is longer than it looks. If you plan to swap kids, add some extra time. We were able to extend 30 minutes yet we were there early in... More

We enjoyed both jet ski rentals and a parasailing excursion with Nor'Banks and are confident we made the right choice! Their staff are very friendly and personable, very professional. They were great at answering our questions and accommodating us. We found the jet ski area to be quite large -- we had teens on 2 skis and parents on one... More

My 7 year old daughter and I rented a jet ski. Nor Banks lived up to its reputation as the best. Jet skis were new and well maintained. Staff was excellent, very organized and professional. We will definitely be back.

Our parasailing trip was great! The two-man crew on the boat were friendly and competent. Nice and comfortable boat. All of the staff were friendly. They also have lots of other water sports options available. All of the equipment appeared to be fairly new and well-maintained. Would highly recommend.

Riding a tube being pulled by a boat is a blast. Can be catered to varying degrees of adventurousness. Dan, our captain, was fun, cool, and accommodating. Warm waters of the sound were gorgeous. Highly recommended.

This place is great. Good customer service and very professional staff. We rented 3 wave runner jet skis for 1 hour and added a fourth without any trouble. 2 minutes of paperwork and we were off to the dock. For jet skis they have a 1 square mile virtual pen to jet around on the sound side of the Outer... More
