Owner description: We offer Jeep Rentals to see the Outer Banks Wild Horses. Rick's Jeep Adventures is the only rental company in the Outer Banks that allows you to customize the Jeep the way you like. These options include the choice to put the top down, take the doors off, avoid direct sunlight with a mesh SPF50 Bikini Top and a complimentary iced cooler. Our Jeeps are customized for beach driving, with top of the line AEV lifts from 3 to 5 inches and 17 inch alloy wheels with 35 inch Kevlar sidewalled tires. These additions not only look great but offer superior handling, ground clearance and traction on the beach. Rent from the best and all you need to do is enjoy your ride! Your off-road Jeep adventure lasts a little over 2 hours. The Jeep tour will take you across the pristine 4X4 beaches. Because our Jeep Rentals are "self driven" but "fully guided" we can offer a full money back guarantee to find the horses. Following a guided tour provides you with access to our guides who enjoy sharing local history and information on the Spanish Wild Horses. Our guides are your GPS and can guide you safely around the 6-7 feet deep mud puddles of Carova and keep you safe back behind the dunes. At Rick's Jeeps we care about our local area, so we want to make sure that everyone has fun on the beach with the minimum environmental impact possible. We also want to ensure that the Spanish Mustang Ponies of the Outer Banks stay free and wild for generations to come.

We drove an open jeep with our two kids (6 & 8) and had a blast. We were led by guide Jill who took us all over the island. We saw several groups of horses and lots of amazing sights on the island. A MUST DO when visiting OBX.

We rented our own Jeep this past week and went on a tour led by Tommy. It was AMAZING! I mostly scheduled the tour for my husband who I figured would like driving a Jeep. We both ended up having a fantastic time. Tommy was great and went out of his way to get out of the tour vehicle he was driving to come back and tell those of us driving our own Jeeps some tidbits of information. We saw plenty of horses but getting to drive the Jeep on the beach in the late afternoon sun and go off roading though the area of Cardova was just so, so awesome! We will be doing this again next time, for sure, and that's saying a lot! The staff was friendly and professional from start to finish. It was pricey but it's worth every single penny!

We had such a great time. Lee was our tour guide and he was sooo nice and informative. He searched until he found us a bunch of horses from great vantage points. While we looked for horses he told us interesting information about the outerbanks and the wild horses. He was funny, nice, and a great guide. We had sooooo much fun!
