Looks like the employees wrote these reviews very questionable. Can't figure out how the customers knew so much about that business. Good work guys

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

This is THE place to rent any kind of watercraft. They have jet skis and all kinds of sailing boats. Top notch place.

The staff and owners are super friendly. We spent an hour jet skiing and then another hour tubing. The jet skis ran great and they have lots of room to let you run. The ski boat is driven by a guide who is willing to go as fast or slow as you want. Great morning!

We selected Nor'Banks because they had the best prices and had better time options than others in the area: 30m/45m/60m. We opted for the 45 minute option because it was a good price and a good time option. They were professional, they give you a quick guide to their 1 sq mile sound area and a safety lesson and you're... More

Rented a Wave sail boat and it was a great experience. A wonderful staff that's patient and friendly. The boat was in nice condition. One of the high points of our trip.

My boyfriend and I purchased parasailing for his parents as a birthday gift, and they just went yesterday. Their family has visited the OBX every summer for the last 23 years and we decided its time they tried something new! They had so much fun between the experience of parasailing and the friendly staff. It's not every day you encounter... More

We rented a Hobie Getaway, and a Waverunner, and both of them were well-maintained and in great shape. Everyone we dealt with, from the owners to the people at the cash registers, to the helpers in the water was helpful and professional.
