You’ll find Causeway Waters Sports on the beautiful Roanoke Sound on the Causeway between Nags Head and Manteo, just past Whalebone Junction. This family outdoor activity center offers parasailing, kayaking, paddleboarding, wave runners and dolphin tours.

Causeway promises customers top of the line equipment with all rentals and a “safe and hassle-free time.“ It also boasts the “most knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining crew on the Outer Banks.”

Located on the calm side of the sound, Causeway offers peaceful and relaxing kayaking on your own or with one of their guided tours through the Bodie Island Wildlife preserve. If you’re not into paddling, you may prefer to set sail on a two-hour dolphin cruise, passing nesting pelicans and osprey on the way. Or you can get a birds-eye view yourself, parasailing to heights up to 1,000 feet.

For more excitement, Causeway’s 4-stroke Yamaha Wave Runners will speed up the pace as well as cool you off on a hot summer day. Whatever your skill level, Causeway’s staff is available to make sure your ride is safe and fun.

Last, but not least, Causeway offers equipment and lessons in the world’s fastest growing water sport - paddleboarding. The lessons are free, and this sport, along with all others Causeway offers, provides a great day of fun and memories.

Outer Banks Birding

Outer Banks Birding

For bird lovers, the Outer Banks is hard to beat. This delicate chain of barrier islands is not only home to dozens of different native shorebirds, but also thousands of migrating birds who make a rest stop on the Outer Banks every year. Add to this the fact that the islands have hundreds of miles of deserted beaches, maritime forest, and marshlands for species to quietly flourish, and it's clear that the Outer Banks is literally for the birds.
