What a great experience. Our Captain, Rusty and his partner (sorry I can't remember his name) made us feel completely at ease. Safety was a top priority and since it was myself and two teenage girls, that was very important. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for something exciting. It was the highlight of our vacation. Thanks guys!!!

The kites here are so beautiful! There are people here that will definitely help you if you don't know how to properly fly a kite. Plus the little store inside has a variety of gifts.

My husband, my brother and his fiancé, my parents and I all went parasailing for the first time! The staff/captain/first mate were all wonderful, friendly, reassuring, experienced, and informative. We even stopped and watched the Dolphins after we finished parasailing. It was supposed to storm around 3 pm and we were scheduled to go at 4:15 so they were very... More

We initially came early in the week in order to use the coupon we had. Staff seemed to want us to go somewhere else, encouraging us to check out other nearby options and noting that their jet skis only go 35 MPH. They also said we shouldn't go out that day because of possible bad weather (which there was a... More

So recently, I decided it would be a great idea to get up early in the morning, sign a waiver saying that I (or my family) would sue if KHK killed me accidentally, and get on a boat with two strangers and allow them to fly me like a human kite with a boat. And it was pretty awesome. To... More

We wanted to go Kayaking, who would have thought Kitty Hawk Kites would be the place to go. Very courteous and helpful staff. Gave us all the warnings necessary. We rented in TWO of their locations, one is in Manteo, Downtown. Paddle through mangroves and out to the Sound. The other location is on the Causeway, Jet boats, skiing etc.

I booked a group parasailing adventure at Kitty Hawk WaterSports (NOT Kitty Hawk Kites) 2 months in advance. A couple of days before the scheduled date I called to confirm and even though I booked it with the owner they didn't have it and to top it off Kitty Hawk WaterSports didn't have their Coast Guard paperwork in timely so...

This place is SO neat! I mean even if you aren't looking for a "kite" they have SO much more inside! The best kind of shopping is sometimes the stuff you see and buy on "impulse" trust me! Really really neat place. It's also across from the big dunes so you can shop, get some ice cream, then burn it... More

We were here on the last day of our trip & rented kayaks & a stand up paddle board. There were 5 of us in our group & they didn't have enough paddles for all of our kayakers. When we were done we were at the dock ready to unload & their parasailing boat came in & started honking at... More
