The Kitty Hawk Kayak & Surf School has added our newest adventure activity on the Outer Banks: Black Bear Tours in the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge. Northeast North Carolina has one of the healthiest black bear populations on the planet, and we know just where to go to see these majestic animals. You and your family will enjoy a comfortable drive through the refuge in our air conditioned van with binoculars for safe viewing. We also give educational talks about the American black bear (Ursus americanus) and the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge. Observing black bear in their natural environment is such a cool experience that you will not soon forget. We commonly see black bears, deer, turkeys, alligators, red wolves, barred owls, red tailed hawks, turtles and other wildlife. The Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge is one of the greatest wildlife corridors on the East Coast of the United States. Come check it out and make memories to last a lifetime.

Private Surf Lessons at Your Beach House, the chillest way to learn to surf on your vacation to the Outer Banks
Private Surf Lessons at Your Beach House on the Outer Banks are quickly becoming our most popular way to learn the ways of the shred and for good reason. All you have to do is walk down to the beach at the end of your street. 🙂 We will bring our top notch surf instructors and shreducators, surfboards, wetsuits and all the gear. Shredding in the confines of the sand bars right out front of your beach house in a private surf lesson setting is a great experience for your family and friends. This is a great option so all the family can watch you surf (and enjoy adult beverages). And the best part is all you gotta do is roll out of bed, get a bathing suite on and walk to the beach; we will do the rest. But make sure to call (252) 261-0145 to schedule these lessons as the times depend on the tide.
