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

Me and friend went to for our first ever parasailing adventure in the OBX and chose Kitty Hawk Kites. The guys that had us on our boat were fantastic. First off, it was kind of a slow day for them so we ended up going an hour earlier than planned. Secondly, they had a great sense of humor and really... More

Husband and I went to the Outer Banks area for the first time and found a nice beach area in Manteo called Jeanettes Pier. Free parking and a nice fishing pier , access to a beautiful beach with great waves. Good for body surfing or surfing. Small gift shop on the pier and they ask for a $2 donation to... More

Ha! What a great afternoon on the jet ski tour around Bodie Island. I would recommend doing the tour, rather than the plain rental as I would find that to possibly be boring. The tour takes you around the bay including marsh lands and the lighthouse. It was my first time jet skiing which made me a little anxious, but... More

My kids took an hour and a half trip....their hang gliding session was about 10 miutes or so, but they absolutely loved it....was a highlight of their vacation and forever memory. Highly recommend. and for those who dont like heights, can walk around manteo and grab an ice cream at mabels which is awesome!
