Our Kitty Hawk kayak tour is the ideal tour for young children and beginner paddlers. Outer Banks Kayak Adventures expert guides start the kayak tour with a short paddle lesson before getting on the water. We paddle at a relaxed pace, and the trees surrounding the canal provide excellent protection from the wind, even on gusty days.
We explore the Kitty Hawk Maritime Forest and Marsh by way of Jean Guite Creek, which is part of the NC Coastal Reserve. A rare and endangered habitat, the maritime forest is home to an abundance of wildlife and intriguing native plants. On this relaxing and highly enjoyable Kitty Hawk kayak tour you might spot an Egret standing along the shore or a river otter swimming across the creek. Osprey, kingfishers, and majestic bald eagles are often spotted flying just above our kayaks. We often see turtles sunning on logs as we paddle through the live oak and wax myrtle filled woods.
This OBX kayak tour is perfect for anyone who enjoys being secluded in the beauty of nature.
