Bioluminescence is a natural phenomenon where organisms produce light through a chemical reaction. Our nighttime kayak tours give you the perfect opportunity to experience the Outer Banks bioluminescence in the water. If the thought of kayaking amongst the stars interests you, then check out our full moon paddles. These kayak tours are fun for the whole family, but only occur a few times per month. Darkness is required to see the bioluminescence, so our OBX Bioluminescence tours will only happen when there isn’t a full moon. (So, you can either take a full moon kayak tour or a bioluminescence kayak tour)
Paddle the marshes of the Roanoke Sound and Cape Hatteras National Seashore by way of our Nags Head kayak tours. While taking one of our kayak tours, you can experience nature up close and personal. Most people tend to think that the Outer Banks is only known for its fantastic beaches, but it’s also known for its diverse wildlife as well. This beautiful area is known for its abundance of coastal birds, such as Black-Necked Stilts and the lovely American Avocets. Along the tour, you may also see other forms of wildlife living in the waters including river otters, and sometimes even dolphins. As you traverse down the coast, our trained instructors will tell entertaining tales about pirates and their voyages across the seven seas and how the town of Nags Head got its mysterious name.
