  • Booked the kayak tour. They told us to arrive 20 minutes early. The tour was supposed to start at 11, we waited until 11:30 and everyone was told the tour guide wasn’t showing up. We wasted about 3...  more »
  • We had a wonderful morning parasailing. Captain Rusty has so much experience you feel safe! He and the first mate were a funny duo which made the whole experience better. I highly recommend them...  more »
  • They really need more staff to straighten up the stores, very disorganized and messy- Duck store was really a mess-very hard to move around and find the correct size.  more »

  • Fun kayaking trip for a group of 8 of us. It was definitely a workout, but really good stories and interesting background on the local wildlife. Most notable, though, was the customer service. When our trip ran across a group of rowdy kids (on land, which really didn't take away from our trip at all, and which was well beyond Kitty Hawk Kites' control) they took quick, decisive action and went out of their way to make it up to us. That was unnecessary from where we were sitting, but certainly appreciated and really showed us how much they care about giving everyone an exceptional experience. We definitely would recommend them for a fun excursion for something different, interesting, and educational on the Outer Banks!
  • Thank you Butch, Ken and Chris!!! My wife and I had a wonderful time on and above the water. Glad that I came around to the water jet board. I surprised myself and had an excellent time listening to the instruction and feedback. We will be back when we swing through the OBX again. Also, thanks for the restaurant suggestion. It was great!
  • We had a blast parasailing with Rusty and Will. They’re both super nice guys and made the experience one to remember. I will definitely be coming back. Thank you for such a wonderful time !
  • My daughter and her friend had a great time parasailing with Kitty Hawk Kites. I was on the boat as an observer. I would like to thank the captain and his assistant (sorry I missed your names it was the 12:30pm sailing on 8/3) for an excellent job getting us back to shore. A dramatic change in the winds made the last parasailing pair very dangerous. The captain and his assistant remained calm through the whole thing. They made sure everyone was protected as we sped through the rain storm. A great job by both gentlemen. They also very entertaining before the rain storm.
  • It was my first time parasailing, my dads second time. The crew guy said he would take about 30 to 40 pictures for 30 dollars. Okay no problem. I said we would like that when we go up please, he said okay I will. So we go up everything was GREAT. We get back down and my dad ask can we see the pictures? The guy said I didn't take any. You needed to say the before. I responded I did. Then the crew guy didn't apologize NOTHING just went to the back of the boat! We went on the boat west side and I think the captains name was Jeff. I don't know the crew guy's name. He was pretty rude!
