“Paddle boarding was fantastic!”


Reviewed June 4, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I went for a 4 hour paddle board jaunt around the Sound. For $40 ea. it was a steal. The proprietors, Eddie and Gail, couldn't be nicer. They scoped out the best route for us based on the tides and the wind. Eddie dropped us off at the put in site and helped us get used to our boards (we never did this before!). He checked in on us at several points during our trip. We saw rays, fish and lots of birds. We have done a lot of kayaking but I don't know that I will ever go back after trying the paddle board! Thanks to Eddie and Gail - we will see you next year for sure. I have been coming here for 15 years and this is for sure the best place in Hatteras for bikes, kayaks and now paddle boards!!!!
