We had another great trip with Cari! We had already kayaked Tubbs Inlet and Blaine Creek with Summertide Adventures, both great paddles with "out of boat experiences," and our third trip was even better. After years of walking the "frontside" of Bird Island Reserve on the ocean, we got to experience the backside marsh areas of the Island via a... More

I was fortunate enough to have been referred to Summertide when I was looking to purchase kayaks. In addition to providing wonderful tours, Summertide sells kayaks. I received personable service. Cari is very knowledgeable about kayaking and was helpful in picking out the kayak that I would need for my purposes. She was very accommodating in delivering the kayaks quickly... More

My daughter, son-in-law and I recently took our third kayak outing with Cari. This time a tour of Sunset Beach, Bird Island and Crab Island. This is a wonderful experience and a beautiful area to explore via kayaks. The big bonus was Cari's knowledge of the birds, crabs and other wildlife we explored. Definitely a do over.

My wife, friend and myself were down on a business trip and went on a kayaking trip with Cari. It was an absolute blast! Cari was able to answer all of our questions about wildlife in the area and the scenery was absolutely beautiful. We will certainly be back and I encourage anyone who is thinking about taking one of... More

I took 2 kayak tours with Summertide the week of August 15th and both were great. The 1st was with my son and the 2nd was with my wife. Both were different but great trips. They definitely earned their Trip Advisor award ranking. Carrie and the "A" - team were great!

We had a great trip with Carrie and Dane, who were our excellent guides on our trip through the intercoastal to a sandbar and back. Activities like this are only fun if you have guides who know their stuff AND can manage a group of temperamental kids (and adults!), and Carrie and Dane were great. One kid had to use... More

We just got back from the bird island tour and what an experience. The equipment was in good condition, the sights were amazing and the guides topped it all off. Kerry and Dane are fantastic people; I can't say enough good things about them. Anyone that is looking for an outdoor experience in the area should book this tour! Thanks... More

Six of us did the evening sunset tour. Guides were great,very personable, easy to talk to. It's out second time touring with them (would have been third if we hadn't been rained out last year). They made it easy even for kayak novices (they have singles and tandems). We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather and a fantastic sunset.... More
