For the young at heart, you can rent a wave runner and make the ride as thrilling as you choose. The sound waters around the Outer Banks are ideal for wave runners because shallow water limits the size of the waves.

Canoes and kayaks can be rented to enjoy a more quiet time on the water.  This is a perfect way to get up-close and personal with the wildlife of the Outer Banks, dolphins have even been known to approach out of curiosity.

Party or pontoon boats can be rented to take the whole family on a water excursion to a deserted island, or to just anchor offshore and jump off the side to enjoy the warm sound water. Tie up at any of the town docks to shop or enjoy a seafood lunch at your favorite restaurant by the water. You can also use these boats to fish because they offer a flat deck with seats and may include a canopy for shade.

Small sailboats can be rented to take advantage of the constant breezes and to practice your skills at maneuvering and navigating these protected waters.  Consider family sailing lessons so everyone can learn to enjoy the fun!

No matter how you choose to spend your time on the water the proper boats are available for rental.
