Things to Do in Hatteras: Kayaking & Canoeing

Kayaking and canoeing is one of the favorite things to do in Hatteras. We love the quiet, physical nature of kayaking and canoeing. Getting around using your own arm power, and without a loud, buzzing motor behind you, is a wonderful way to explore sights and sounds of the local creeks, canals and sounds. It’s easy to go kayaking on Hatteras Island. Look to these businesses and locations if you’re interested canoeing or kayaking on Hatteras Island.
