The Cape Hatteras National Seashore is a must see on Hatteras Island. On this kayak tour, we frequently spot ospreys, pelicans, herons, egrets, ibis, terns, rails, skimmers, wrens, and warbles just to name a few. We will tour the salt marsh canals and flat waters of the Pamlico Sound. This tour location also packs a punch with its unreal sunsets!!!!<br><br>LOCATION: HWY 12 South, Just South of Rodanthe, NC 27968 <br><br>Great sunset tour area!

Well, yes... the climb really is worth it.. but the museum with exhibitions & artifacts in the Lighthouse Keepers house is fascinating. I don’t think many of us realize what really went on off the coast of NC during WWII, for example. Plan to spend several hours to enjoy the
