It's not a Topsail Island vacation without an outing with these folks. Kayaked out to Permuda Island. The mullet were jumping. Got to see a mature bald eagle. Not as much wildlife this time around, but great weather!

We rented kayaks and they helped us know what to do and how to actually paddle correctly. We had a helpful map to find our way!! We went around an island and saw some beautiful sights. I highly recommend coming here for kayaking!

We didn't plan much on our beach vacation and are so glad we did the kayaking trip together. Our guide was great, taking tons of pics for us to have after. The kids (ages 10-4) had a great time as well. Definitely recommend!
