I’m still sore, but loved it!

I liked how easy the instructor was to understand. I appreciated how Scottie kept the group together and took time to get a photo for all who wanted one. Nice touch!

Highly recommended
What a well run operation. Friendly and excited to take us out. Great, easy paddle, very scenic. Looked for wildlife, but other than turtles and one snake, they were hidden. no matter. Olivia was filled with lots of info about the creek. Highly recommended, especially for amateurs.

Wow! What a fantastic way to see and explore Kitty Hawk. Our guide, Victoria, was superb. She was very warm and approachable, as well as knowledgeable. Our first adventure with Kitty Hawk Kayaks certainly won’t be our last!

Awesome family activity
Aug 2021 • Family
We were all inexperienced first timers on the kayak. We had such a lovely time on the tour. Our tour guide Olive was very friendly and patient. We got caught in the woods and she patiently taught us how to maneuver which we used the rest of the ride. We enjoyed all the wildlife and the forest. She had very good knowledge of the forest. For a first timer it was super easy as the water is very calm. Definitely would recommend it.

Olive even suggested a few vegetarian restaurants and we tried it. we tried her suggestions and loved it.

Great Kayak Tour for Beginners!
Jul 2021 • Friends
This was a great Kayak tour! We chose it specifically because 2 of our group of 3 had never kayaked, and it said it was great for beginners. It definitely was! The water was very calm and the Maritime forest offered some great views! Our guide was Bella, and she was really great! Super friendly, really helpful in teaching us the kayaking basics, and really knowledgeable on the forest. I would definitely recommend this tour and company!

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.

Its hard to say who was hindering who here. In a guided trip our participants are our responsibility and we must operate a tour that works for the entire group. As for the photos this is a courtesy the guide did for you and NOT a professional photo shoot. The guides primary concern is safety on the water, not your Instagram and Facebook feed. All of our staff are certified by the American Canoe and Kayak Association: no other operator requires such a high level of training. Also we have an extensive training through the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the Audubon Society and the Nature Conservancy so the guides have plenty of info to share. Next time I would suggest renting a kayak as well, especially from another outfitter. We are sorry you did not enjoy your tour but are confident almost all of our customers do.

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