Guided Group Tours Let You See and Enjoy More

Your visit to Carolina Beach is much more rewarding when one of our experienced kayak specialists shows you the sites. Paddle NC offers guided kayak tours that help you truly enjoy your time on the water. You can visit areas you otherwise would not see and learn more about the local ecosystem.

The Cape Fear River is a very wide and friendly body of water that enters the Atlantic Ocean right near Carolina Beach. Several islands and plenty of sandy shorelines all help to make the experience much better while you enjoy our fun and exciting guided tours.

Our experienced guides can lead your small group to the best there is to see. We also ensure you are making good progress and handling your kayak competently and safely.

Enjoy a Leisurely Half-Day Tour

We offer a variety of kayak tours that last about half the day. A half-day expedition is very fun and will not tire you out. You can get a good amount of sun while having fun paddling your kayak to the exciting locations that our guides have in mind. You will be in a small group so that you can communicate with the tour leader and meet other great people.

Full-Day Tours Add to the Fun

If you really want to spend a lot of time on the local waters, our kayak tours are the ideal solution. Our full-day tours help you learn about popular destinations, including Carolina Beach State Park and Hammocks Beach State Park.

The Permuda Island Reserve is teeming with wildlife that changes with the seasons. You can participate in an off-site eco-adventure that really explores the local waterways more thoroughly during a very fun day on the water.
