The staff were great at making sure the safety info was provided and the kids were secure in their harnesses for the sail! I had such a great time & I was just an observer in the boat. They know how to help... More

We had a great time during our Wave Runner rental here. Everything was explained clearly and in an organized fashion. We will be back next year!

We totally enjoyed our experience at Nor'banks! Our crew for Parasailing Jamie and Alex made our trip fun and safe. They are very accommodating and knowledgeable. We look forward to our next trip to Duck to plan some water sports with Nor'banks.

Great experience from the get-go. Jon was very helpful in answering my questions ahead of time, as I wanted to purchase a gift certificate for my Dad, an experience sailor who hasn't had the opportunity to sail for several years. Jon and I exchanged emails several times, and he was very professional and helpful. When we arrived in Corolla for... More

Friendly and helpful staff for parasailing and sailing on catamaran. Conveniently located on hwy 12 in Duck. Pricing the same or less than other options.

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.

rented a SUP and had the best price and excellent service. We had never used before but didn't require us to pay for an introduction course prior to our rental. Quickly got us in the water and on our way.

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.
