To see a totally different side of the Outer Banks, slip back into the marsh creeks and coves on a kayak. Kitty Hawk Kites offers kayak tours leaving from several locations, including the Manteo waterfront, Kitty Hawk, Alligator River, Pea Island, Bodie Island, Cape Hatteras National Seashore and Corolla. Guides point out features of the area ecology and wildlife and talk about the history of the Outer Banks. Some of the most unique to paddle locations include the Alligator River Wildlife Refuge, Kitty Hawk Maritime forest, Bodie Island Wildlife Refuge, and nighttime bioluminescence tours. You must make advance reservations for guided kayak tours. Tandem and single kayaks, and stand up paddleboards are available for rent, with hourly, daily and weekly rates available.
