Was fortunate to get time slot for parasailing. Definitely plan in advance. Glad we picked a morning time. Easy location to get to, clean and all staff were very friendly. Great time would highly recommend

Fantastic family trip water-skiing, knee-boarding, wake-boarding, & tubing. Senior Capitano was truly awesome to teach us new skills and handle the boat masterfully. We had a fabulous time. Thank you, Captain!

Best place for all your Watersport needs while on vacation! I've rented catamarans several times and my relatives partook in an e-foil lesson with John (absolutely FANTASTIC). Weather is notoriously uncooperative and they are very flexible with rescheduling dates and times!! The boundaries are HUGE and the staff could not be nicer! Will definitely be using them for all future vacation activities!

Great time parasailing. Captain Shawn did a great job and made the correct call as to weather with his passenger’s safety being a top concern. Ben and Clayton also made the experience very fun and safe.

We rented a pontoon boat and didn’t know what to expect. It was a great experience end to end: reservation, check in, education how to sail the boat, docking and the boat as such. Nor’banks made it really easy and accommodating for us. The boat was in very good shape and we could enjoy the entire south side of the Currituck sound (up to the main bridge on to the outer banks). They also have other pontoon boats which we will try next time. We will be back for sure.
