Happy stroll down a lazy river
Jun 2021 • Couples
My family had a wonderful lazily paddling up and down a river, and our tour guide, Cora, was so nice and easy to chat with! She was knowledgeable and kept a good but easy pace. Would definitely go again.

Nice quiet paddle through the wetland trees. Perfect activity for our bachelorette weekend. Donny was awesome diving in to rescue a phone that fell in the water!

Super fun tour! The guide was so fun and helpful. I enjoyed talking to her, although she took very blurry photos😅. It was nice looking at the turtles and learning about the forest! Very relaxing and I would totally recommend!

The guide wasn't really needed. She was a hindrance and took bad pics after offering to take them. I was very disappointed. Next time I will just rent a kayak.

The whole ride was great. Keeping limited riders for less than 15 per ride would be even better other than that rest is good.

A Great Tour for First Time Kayakers & Families
Apr 2021
Overall: Awesome, awesome awesomeness. I booked the Maritime Forest Tour for my family of three (my husband with some Kayak experience, me with rowing experience, and our 9 year old with no experience but all zeal). We had the best time – even though it took me a second to figure out how to go in a forward direction and I bumped into a few trees. We enjoyed 2 hours on a calm river inlet surrounded by trees and turtles. There is a really lovely bridge to go under, too.

Pro: Despite there being a large group (maybe 12), our tour guide Olivia was able to interact with every person, get to know them, and tailor the experience for them. She knew a lot about the local flora and fauna, and found a water snake chilling out in a tree to show our son. (No nutria sightings, though. He’s still on about that. I’m quite alright not having seen an R.O.U.S.). Everyone was provided life jackets and a quick tutorial before heading out on the water. This was a great experience for newbies.

Con: Porta-potty are the facilities available. It was clean but bring hand sanitizer with you, as you should already. And, parking tight. Get there a little early and it shouldn’t be a problem.

PSA – Tip your guides!

Scotty was a fantastic and very personable guide. His knowledge of the forest was valuable to our curious group. It was the perfect pace for talking and learning. Super relaxing and a great way to spend the afternoon.

Great time for all
Sep 2020
Staff was super easy to work with. Really loved the online waiver forms - great time saver. The Currituck Sound is a great place to jet ski. Wide open waters with plenty of room for all. During our time there were 6 skis on the water and distancing was never an issue. We all had a blast (from 28 years old - 60 years old).

Complete Your OBX Experience
Aug 2020
Very enjoyable tour of the briny salt marshes and ponds. My family loved having our guide Victoria inform us about the trees, plant life,animals, and surrounding history. She was warm and friendly, offering a hand and information about the environment when we were interested, but also allowed us to relax, listening to the sounds, drifting along the banks at a slower pace other times which was wonderful, too! We appreciated her balanced approach much as she guided us through. We were beginners and acclimated easily with her support. Our trip wouldn't have been complete without kayaking the other side of the Banks to appreciate more than the beach. We went early morning before temps got hot. Note-it was a little tricky to find on Google maps, so give yourself an extra few minutes to find at first.
