I liked how easy the instructor was to understand. I appreciated how Scottie kept the group together and took time to get a photo for all who wanted one. Nice touch!

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and kind and respectful. Did not try to micromanage us experienced kayakers, just let us know where to stop along at our pace. Would definitely recommend at least once.

What a well run operation. Friendly and excited to take us out. Great, easy paddle, very scenic. Looked for wildlife, but other than turtles and one snake, they were hidden. no matter. Olivia was filled with lots of info about the creek. Highly recommended, especially for amateurs.

I had never been in a Kayak previously. The guide gave instructions prior to starting out; safety was a priority; we saw a large Egret up close and personal; the guide was a wealth of knowledge about local wildlife and history. It was a great tour and well worth the price.

Wow! What a fantastic way to see and explore Kitty Hawk. Our guide, Victoria, was superb. She was very warm and approachable, as well as knowledgeable. Our first adventure with Kitty Hawk Kayaks certainly won’t be our last!

This tour was one of our favorite parts of the trip to the Outerbanks and our guide, Donny, was fantastic. We would definitely be interested in doing another tour the next time we're back.

We were all inexperienced first timers on the kayak. We had such a lovely time on the tour. Our tour guide Olive was very friendly and patient. We got caught in the woods and she patiently taught us how to maneuver which we used the rest of the ride. We enjoyed all the wildlife and the forest. She had very good knowledge of the forest. For a first timer it was super easy as the water is very calm. Definitely would recommend it.Olive even suggested a few vegetarian restaurants and we tried it. we tried her suggestions and loved it.
