So I walked in to Kitty Hawk Kites for jetski rentals and they wouldn't rent any more because of an upcoming tour. So, I found this place (Nags Head Water Sports, same address) just a short drive away. Really good deal. This would be a great place for families. The skis seat 3 and can go up to 50mph (roughly...

The staff was friendly and helpful - especially in instruction on the jet ski. The skiing area was not as large as I would have liked, but adequate, and the skis would really fly. The whole family got to spend some time intehwater and it was a fun way to spend an afternoon.

Stopped by today to ask about launching our kayaks from their beach. The man behind the counter was extremely rude as he told us no. We realize that not all put in locations are open to the public, which is why we asked first. When we asked if there were any public launch sites nearby he said he didn't know... More

We found their location desirable to rent jet skis. The skis felt new and they did a nice job explaining everything and patroling the area to make sure you stayed in the correct area and didnt have any orobkems eith the equipment. That was helpful as my jet ski got a bunch of seaweed caught in the motor and stopped... More

It's horrible and please do not go there. Owner or whomever works behind counter is rude. His boat operator did horrible job. I sent my 4 kids to parasailing. They told me that they go up in the air for 12 minutes. Guess what!!!! He only took them up about less than 7 minutes. He left 20 minutes late and... More

Great place for beginners to rent. The staff is always watching to make people are doing okay out on the water. Fast, quiet, jet skis. If you want to get a rental try morning. The afternoons are booked up fast after people leave the beach they are looking for something fun to do so you could have a long wait.... More

I guess it was one of the owners that was behind the counter checking my family in for our parasailing trip last week, that was extremely rude! The forms that were supposed to be completed by the adults were shoved into the adults faces as we were told to fill them out and pay quickly because our boat was leaving... More

We used the coupon for parasailing and took the whole family. It was an experience to remember! the captain and "helper" on the "Thrillseeker" boat seemed very knowledable and safety conscious. You take off from the back of the boat, then land right back there without ever getting wet if you don't want to. It was a once in a... More

We booked a dolphin tour just to do something as a large group, my expectations weren't very high. I can't explain in words how pleased I was after the trip. 90 minutes of straight up fun.
