The folks at Adventure Kayak have got it right: well organized tours of a variety of Brunswick County waterways, complete with expert instruction and information about the history and habitat of the areas visited. Overall, a very pleasant and highly recommended experience if you're visiting the beautiful Southport area.

The guides (john and Bob) were wonderful, and very knowledgeable about the creek (rice creek.) The equipment was in good condition, the day was excellent and the guides were full of interesting information about the area and other possible kayaking trips. I am looking forward to using this company again as I learn about where to kayak in the area.

Whether you live in the area, are visiting the area, or have visited in the past - don't miss out on a fantastic experience with this Southport 'Gem'. If you have your own kayak you can use it, and if you don't, you can rent one for cheap. I have done both. Today a group of us paddled Rice Creek.... More

A great place to rent a kayak, get great tour guides, and by equipment at a reasonable price. We have taken tours with small groups and large family reunions. They are very accommodating to meet your needs. Many tour options and if you have enough people, you can pick your tour destination. They give great advice and support the local... More

A friend and I rented bikes here to tour around Southport. Both employees we interacted with were wonderful. They set us up with baskets and a bike lock and provided suggestions on where to go! It was a perfect way to explore the city! I would rent bikes here again.

My wife & I have now been on two different excursions with AKC and have thoroughly enjoyed both times. Once at Oak Island and once at Town Creek. John & Brian(I think) were our guides at Oak Island and Brian (a different Brian) and Bruce were our guides at Town Creek. In both cases they were terrific, helpful, great instruction,... More

This was such a worth while outing! We let John and Lee lead us down the Rice River and had a wonderful 2+ hours of serenity. The kayaks are a breeze to maneuver even if you have never done it before and with our guides short tutorial before the start of the trip, there was no hesitation or fear whatsoever.... More
