If you’re a bird lover, then check out our Pea Island kayak tour! Witness the wide variety of unique and rare birds that can be seen as you paddle through the beautiful Pamlico Sound. With an impressive list of 365 species of reported bird sightings along Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge, there is a high probability that you may see your favorite bird up close and personal. Some of the common birds that can potentially be seen as you explore the waters of Pea Island are the Brown Pelican, Royal Tern, American Avocet, heron, egret, and the gorgeous white Ibis. If you aren’t a bird person, don’t worry. This small barrier island located at the northern end of Hatteras is also home to many different aquatic creatures including Loggerhead sea turtles. As we move along the sound, the clear shallow water provides us with a fantastic view of stingray, crabs, skates, and other marine wildlife.
As you tour the beautiful Pea Island, our expert guides will tell you all about the history of the island along with interesting facts about coastal ecology.
