Beaufort Inlet Water Sports - Coastal Kayak and Paddle Board Outfitters offers guided tours, lessons and rentals of kayaks and stand up paddle boards to give you a personal experience with the water, wildlife and habitats of the North Carolina Rachel Carson Reserve.

Sign up for a paddle trip down-current with a return trip in the Beaufort Inlet Water Sports van, which includes a short hike on the NC Rachel Carson Reserve to look for wild horses. Or start with a lesson from ACA certified instructors in basic kayak or stand up paddle board skills. For those wanting to master the sport, more in-depth classroom and on-the-water instruction in strokes, maneuvers, equipment and safety are available. Rentals are also available for those with previous experience.

Want to understand more about our local biology? Try an eco trip which involves paddling to a local shellfish farm, learning about the benefits of living shorelines, and exploring Brown’s Island.

All paddle equipment is included, just bring shoes that can get wet and muddy!
