On a beautiful fall we took an easy trip through the Kitty Hawk Coastal Reserve with Joe. We learned so much about the area and thoroughly enjoyed our time on the water. We will be back to take a different tour next time. Highly recommend.

We only had a couple of days in Outer Banks, unfortunately but very glad we booked a kayak trip. We saw alligators, heard the wolves in the distance and as an added bonus saw 5 black bears on the way back. Joe was a great guide too - highly recommend this tour.

The group was small (6 plus a guide). Our guide Michelle, was knowledgeable and informative. We saw 1 bear in a tree by the water, and several... More

We've done a lot of kayaking including many eco-tours, and tend to be a little skeptical. We want more than just a paddle along a river. Coastal Kayak and our guide Brett did not disappoint! Our family of 8 adults ranging from 20 to "we're not really seniors yet" included one very pregnant (and physically fit) daughter-in-law and a son... More
