We booked two sailboats for our group. The guides were friendly, knowledgeable and made sure we had a great time. Even our youngest at age 5 was perfectly comfortable and loved every minute.

We took an hour long kayak tour around the marsh, my daughter, hubby, and I. Great guide, wonderful scenery and serene. We learned tidbits about the area, wildlife, and had fun. If and when we go back we would take it again.

We went sailing one day and, on another day, kayaking, under the watchful eye and tutelage of Sail Shop staff members. Most of our family had never before experienced either sport, and we found our guides to be knowledgeable, skilled, and very personable. We had wonderful experiences both days and give the Sail Shop two thumbs up!

We booked a sail tour through the shop. Our guide was great and extremely knowledgeable. He saw that one of the kids was a little apprehensive and made some adjustments during the sail to make her more comfortable. The kids guided the boat and participated in the entire process. Highly recommended attraction!

Scenic tour of Bald Head Creek. Not a lot to see in an hour, but fun overall. Guide was pleasant. Good for first-timers.

The entire staff is friendly and knowledgeable. We have taken several Fun Sail trips and Dan and Justin are fun, safe and educational as well. They don't "overdo" the educational part, but we always find out something new about the area. We also have taken several guided kayak tours and have seen amazing sights and also learned a few things... More

For a memorable kayaking, fishing, or sailing experience on Bald Head Island, look no further than this outfit of friendly, knowledgeable pros. They know the creeks, the local wildlife, the best places to fish, and the best times to go. They provide patient instruction if you need it, and expert guide services if you don't.

My wife, two children and I spent the last 7 days on Bald Head Island. This was our second trip to the island. We enjoyed our stay very much. The best activity was a 2 hour guided kayak tour through the marsh. Our tour guide, Alli, was very informative. After a quick lesson on how to operate the kayak (this... More
