  • Excellent customer service, wide array of outdoor sports activities, and a beautiful high end shop! Our family rented kayaks for an hour and it was an amazing experience.

  • Nor Banks Sailing was fabulous to work with from start to finish. We called with a bunch of questions about party boat rentals, and they were friendly and informative. Booking was easy. When we needed a last minute adjustment to our reservation they went above and beyond to accommodate us. Upon arrival, check in was easy. The crew from front desk to dock were all super friendly and upbeat. They have a fun, scenic waiting area where you can look at the boats, or hang out and have drinks or snacks in the shade. The boat itself was new and clean. They did a great job of showing us how to drive the boat, informing us on what to avoid in the bay, then sent us on our way for some fun! The sound was beautiful to cruise around, lots of pretty houses to look at, and we got a lovely sunset. We anchored for a bit and everyone jumped in for a swim. The water in that area was super calm and warm. Definitely worth booking on your next trip to Outer Banks!
  • This review is long overdue. We've been coming here every year for the past 5 years. We have an absolute blast every single year! Nor'Banks is easy to get to. Usually, we make our reservations in the morning when it is less crowded. The parking lot seems small, but we've never had an issue finding a space. The staff have been great every year. All of them that we met have been super helpful. They have also been very knowledgeable about the water craft as well as the sound itself. Jet skis have been the name of the game for many years. I come here with my brother, my friend, and their families. We take the kids on the jet skis and they have so much fun! This year, we changed it up and rented a pontoon boat for the first time. That ended up being awesome because it was a 2 hour rental. We got to go to the bridge which made it feel as though we weren't all that restricted for space. We stopped a couple times to go swimming as well. If you're wanting to get some time on the water, I highly recommend this spot!
  • We had a group parasail here in July 2022. Our kids had a great time. The captains on the boat were awesome and all other staff were friendly and helpful. From checking in at the start, getting ready, waiting for our turn, to the end and even eating at the restaurant, this place is top notch!!
  • We took 6 people for 3 jet skis around 11 am on a Sunday and had a blast. Very little wait time. Everyone is super nice that works there. And please take their advice: stay 100ft from other riders and use the red flags to guide you in and out the no wake zone ✌️🧡🚤
  • Rented a pontoon boat today and it was a blast. They made sure the weather was perfect for us to enjoy our boat journey into the sunset. Boat was well maintained, Logan was very helpful and the rental was nothing but ease. The views were amazing!
