What a great place to rent kayaks and paddle boards. Shawn was very helpful, we had never been on paddle board's before and he was very helpful. If you have a chance do not miss this awesome adventure, dolphins were swimming near us, so beautiful.

We went on a guided kayak tour out to see Cockspur lighthouse. We learned a lot and even got to go up on the little island for pictures of the lighthouse. During our time in the water Dolphins were swimming and playing around us (at times less than 10 feet away)! We also saw a sea turtle. I highly recommend... More

Had a great tour of the Cockspur Lighthouse and got to get within an arms reach of 6 playful dolphins. Fiancé thought it was the highlight of the trip. The tour guides were informational and professional. Will be back to do another one of their tours!

I have always wanted to visit Little Tybee Island, the uninhabited, completely undeveloped island that sits so enticingly close to Tybee. As first timers, we felt more comfortable going with a guide, and I am so glad we did! The guides who work at North Island Sea and Kayak are very experienced in navigating the areas all around Tybee. It... More

The owners were very friendly and provided the best package for the individual or group kayakers. They made great suggestions on local spots to dine and visit. Definitely will return!

Took surfing lessons and had a great time! All three of us in the group got up really quickly! The owner was a little difficult to get in touch with (first morning we tried, we were unable to take the lessons due to the strong unpredictable current) so don't wait until the last minute to sign up! Super helpful and... More

My boyfriend and I rented a couple of kayaks for one of our days on vacation, and it was awesome! The staff at the shack was super friendly and had great attitudes :). After we had signed our waivers, we were instructed to go down to the dock and wait for them to bring us some kayaks. They were super... More

We had absolutely the easiest time booking our kayaks with this company. They were friendly, focused on safety and helped us on our way promptly. My only warning would be to ask about the tides. We had a great time going out, but really struggled with the kids on their own kayaks getting back in. Make sure you go out... More

The folks at North Island Surf and Kayak were friendly enough but if I hadn't done a bunch of research about where to go and what we wanted to see, they wouldn't have been much help. We rented 3 kayaks and 1 SUP board one day for a paddle across from Alley 3 to Little Tybee Island, which is an... More
