Sunset Kayak Eco-Tour

Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri.
2 hours

This tour combines the natural and cultural history of Ocracoke in a 2 hour paddle trip starting at 5:30pm. We'll start out from our location on Silver Lake, Ocracoke's Harbor. Your guide will brief you on the basics of boat handling and any safety issues. From there you'll be off and paddling toward the Pamlico Sound. This trip follows the shoreline(lots of shallow, warm water) and visits the marshy flats that border our village. Along the way you'll learn the history of Ocracoke, a little about one of our favorite local pirates, BlackBeard and of course be exposed to the flora, fauna, and wildlife that makes up the ecosystem of the sound side of our barrier island. Our boats are all recreational class kayaks that will accommodate paddlers from beginner to advanced. Please note that this experience accommodates up to 10 guests. Please give us a call if you would like to book a private tour. Each child (12 and under) must be accompanied in a tandem kayak by an adult. All kayak tours include a Ride the Wind Water Bottle.
