Kitty Hawk Stand Up Paddle Tour

Kitty Hawk Stand Up Paddle Tour

Our most popular SUP tour location, the Kitty Hawk Stand Up Paddle Tour is excellent for first timers and young SUPers.

The Kitty Hawk Stand Up Paddle Tour explores the calm bays and sheltered waters of Kitty Hawk, an ideal place to learn how to stand up paddleboard for the first time. This tour leaves standup paddleboarding from our shop in Kitty Hawk and explores the North Carolina Coastal Reserve, one of the few intact maritime forest environments on the Outer Banks. We will also paddle the salt marsh waterways between Martin’s Point and Southern Shores. The Kitty Hawk Stand Up Paddle Tour is just for you.

This is THE BEST locale for beginners and to get on the water on windy days because of the shelter provided by Live Oaks and Loblolly Pine trees insuring smooth waters, even during the Outer Banks’ strong and freuent Nor’easters!
