What a great time! Kitty Hawk Water Sports did a great job with our Parasailing trip. I booked online effortlessly and check in went smoothly. The captain and mate were professional, friendly, and funny - making everyone feel comfortable. We took the 600 feet option and that was perfect for us. The takeoff and landing were easy and we were... More

After spending the last 8 months loosing weight I decided I wanted to go parasailing while in the OBX this year. However when we got to the boat I was underweight to go up for my scheduled flight. The captain and first mate worked their magic and decided that the another passenger and I would go up together. Definitely was... More

Safe! The crew were very knowledgeable and knew what they were doing to keep everyone on the boat and in the air safe!! We bought a flight for three but my daughter freaked out a bit so stayed on the boat. They refunded us the difference which was great! The flight was amazing! Totally do it again but higher! The...

It took a while but the dolphins finally popped up a bit for us to see them. The captain and the young lady (marine biologist from Jersey) were very friendly and engaged the children with a little data gathering activity at the end of the tour. It was about 2hrs long so make sure your little ones use the restroom... More

Never done this before so everything was new. I was surprised at how easy it was to take off and land. The captain and mate did an excellent job explaining what to do and getting us ready. What blew me away was the ride. It was quiet and smooth. You could have thought you were sitting in your living room,... More

We visited last year and looked forward to a visit this year. We ended up visiting twice. There is so much to choose from - bumper boats, jet skis, kayaks, tubing, stand up paddle boards, Hobie cats, and parasailing. They also have a shop that sells frozen yogurt, hot dogs, and pretzels. If you have a little bit of a... More

We did an Eco-tour boat trip on the sound with Captain Brian. He made a point to talk with everyone and geared the trip to our expectations. And he delivered! Very knowledgable about the area; and took a few extra minutes to made sure we did see some wild horses and learn about the crabs. It was a beautiful mid-morning... More

If you want to rent Jet Skis, don't look any further. Staff is wonderful and you will add a special memory to your trip. My sons and I always try to schedule time to Jet Ski when we are in the OBX. Definitely check this place out.

We went on a 75-minute jet ski tour, and the instructor was really nice, and very patient with me (a timid, first-time jet skier). The tour takes you through Currituck Sound, and the instructor pointed out the sights. At the end we had some free time on the jet skis, which was pretty awesome. A few days later, we rented...

My adult children and I rented SUPs from Whalebone Water Sports which is affiliated with Kitty Hawk Kites. I called ahead to make sure they had three boards.
