Discover the waters less traveled with OBA's unique Eco-tours on NC's only commercial operated Air boat or take a spin on a SUP with a guided Tour or private lesson on one of our SUPATX Stand Up Paddle Boards, we can customize an adventure for your vacation needs. Our most popular are our Air Boat tours which run $60pp for 1hr, $85 for our new 1.5hr or $100pp for our deluxe 2hr tour, our tours cover between 18-27 miles making several stops along the way including sand bars & private islands depending on which you choose determines what stops & duration of them. 1/2 day & Full day charters & special hours are also available upon request where multiple activities & sightseeing can be done. Spend the day exploring the OBX that few get to see. Our 1 hr guided SUP tours start at $35pp, 2hrs for $60pp & 3hrs for $80pp all include a lesson. All TOURS are booked by Appointment to ensure a personal & unique experience. We run from the Nagshead/Manteo causeway near the Washington Baum Boat landing & other Locations across the Outer banks depending on weather conditions.. Please note all Air boat tours have a 4 person minimum & a max of 6 per tour. If you have LESS than 4 we can usually pair you up with another group or you are welcome to pay the difference for a private tour & experience. MORE than 6 we can split the group & there is usually a great restaurant close by :)
