“Great Parasailing!!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

Me and friend went to for our first ever parasailing adventure in the OBX and chose Kitty Hawk Kites. The guys that had us on our boat were fantastic. First off, it was kind of a slow day for them so we ended up going an hour earlier than planned. Secondly, they had a great sense of humor and really joked around with us while in the air and on the boat. The fact that we were also the only people on the boat was fantastic. Didn't have to wait for anyone and we got to spend an extra couple minutes in the air. DEFINITELY recommend Kitty Hawk Kites for any parasailing adventure in the OBX!!!

“Fantastic Beach”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Husband and I went to the Outer Banks area for the first time and found a nice beach area in Manteo called Jeanettes Pier. Free parking and a nice fishing pier , access to a beautiful beach with great waves. Good for body surfing or surfing. Small gift shop on the pier and they ask for a $2 donation to go on to the pier...prices vary for fishing access...we saw a lot of people fishing there ...several places to eat nearby and also the North Carolina Aquarium (http://www.ncaquariums.com/roanoke-island). Wish we had more than a day there...definately a great place to spend the day at!

“Fun on Jet Ski tour”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Ha! What a great afternoon on the jet ski tour around Bodie Island. I would recommend doing the tour, rather than the plain rental as I would find that to possibly be boring. The tour takes you around the bay including marsh lands and the lighthouse. It was my first time jet skiing which made me a little anxious, but we ended up having so much fun.

Wear sunglasses (so you can see) and something over your bathing suit so that you don't get sunburned. You will love it!
