This year we have brought back one of our most popular tours on the water!!
This trip is three adventures in one! First take a short horse tour heading up the coast driving along the beach to a private boat launch located next to a historic hunt club. The area is at the “Penny Hill” adventure area, where we do our ATV, and 4×4/Kayak combos.
After your four-wheeling up the beach, your coast Guard licensed captain and kayak guide will load you and your crew onto the “Mothership”. This is a shallow draft 25ft boat inspected for 12 people. We will then take a cruise on the boat to monkey island, which is the largest shore bird rookery in northern NC. It also has an historic hunt club on it.
After photos and a history lesson, your captain will proceed to show you around and narrate as we go. Crab pots will be pulled to show the local blue crabs and usually some fish, then we will drop you and your kayak guide off “up wind” so you are paddling down wind and not fighting it.
We usually see horses grazing in their native marsh areas along with other wildlife. We will normally finish up, due to our prevailing South winds, at the base of “Penny Hill”, the second largest living sand dune on the East coast. We own this dune and have exclusive access to it!
As an alternative, we will also be doing just boat cruises around sunset with no kayaking involved. Call for details. Minimum age is 3 yrs on all kayak trips.
