We rented some stand up paddle boards and paddled back the salt marsh. Turtles, crabs, birds, it was a nice afternoon. The staff was friendly and very helpful.

We took a double kayak for a two hour rental through the wetlands and enjoyed the sights. Plenty of tall grasses, wildlife, and marshes to enjoy. A nice break from the beach.

we leave from the marina and kayak up cape island creek. I would say that two thirds of the tour is in quiet natural areas.

Most people leave their valuable items in their car. We will keep the car keys behind the counter next to the register while people are kayaking.
