Outer Banks Single Kayak Rentals
Kayaking is one of the most popular activities in the Outer Banks! And for good reason–the massive Pamlico and Albemarle Sounds offer many diverse and unique landscapes to explore. Inland rivers, canals, salt marshes, and the ocean all become your domain in a kayak.
Kayak rentals are available at 8 Kitty Hawk Kites locations throughout the Outer Banks. Rental locations are in Corolla, Duck, Nags Head, Manteo, Rodanthe, Avon, and Hatteras. Please call or stop by one of these stores for more information!
Types of Kayaks
Kitty Hawk Kites and Kitty Hawk Surf Co. carry top kayaking brands including Wilderness Systems, Ocean Kayaks, Hobie and Perception. We offer both sit-in kayaks and sit-on-top kayaks. Sit-in kayaks are traditionally used in the sound of the Outer Banks whereas sit-on-top kayaks are more versatile and can be used in both the sound and ocean. It is recommended that only professionals take sit-in kayaks into the Ocean. They are great for exploring–they come with a comfortable padded seat and back support.
Sit-in and sit-on-top kayaks are available as a single and as a tandem. We also have fishing kayaks that are perfect for anglers who want to drop a line after paddling out into the sound or ocean waters.
Weekly Rentals are available with delivery.
Note: Rentals are on a first come first serve basis – call ahead for availability. There are kayak tours available as well. Please call for details.
Kayak Rentals available in Corolla, Duck, Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head, Manteo, Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo, Avon, Buxton, Frisco and Hatteras!
