Bird Island Tour Alternative 

Posted on: August 17th, 2017 by Charles (Rip) Vanwinkle

Our Bird Island kayak tour is probably our most popular kayak tour we offer. This trip is usually full and we hate to disappoint anyone if we can’t take them because we don’t have room. We put maximum numbers on all our trips for everyone’s safety. We can’t always go on Bird Island tours just because all our trips are based on the tide. The days we take different trips we would literally be paddling against the current and tide all day. However you can still enjoy a trip to Bird Island without kayaking there. We can take y’all on the boat and do some Island hoping. We can go to Bird Island and explore, then cruise down to see the Little River and Calabash waterfront and just enjoy a day on the water. The boat is very roomy and comfortable with bottled water and ice provided. Other than that bring whatever you’d like. So if you’re looking to explore the backwaters and secluded beaches and we can’t take you out on a kayak let us take you out on the boat. Call 910-833-2418 or stop by our shop on OIB 59b causeway dr. to make a reservation. Let’s get y’all out there and see what we can find.

Sunrise, Sunrise

Hey y’all!


We are excited to announce that we will be doing a second sunrise tour this summer!! Back by popular demand, join us THIS Saturday, August 5th, for a 6:30am sunrise kayaking tour. The most incredible way to catch the sunrise on the coast, but we may be biased. If this sounds like something you or your group are interested in, call 910.833.2418 to make your reservation!

Beat the Heat

Hey y’all!

Not sure if you noticed or not, but it is HOT this week. What better way to cool off than being on the water? We are touring Tubbs Inlet this week and there is plenty availability for you and your group! Boat Cruises are heading out daily and the breeze on the water is just what the doctor ordered.

We have a full calendar of kayak daytime tours and Twillight Tours available on the site. Tours and Boat Cruises can be booked by calling our shop at 910.833.2418. We hope to get you on the water soon!

What’s going on this week?

Hey paddlers!

We’re ready to hit Bird Island all week long! July 3rd – July 7th, we will be paddling out to one of our favorite places in the area. Bird Island is such a great trip to be a part of because you’re able to see so much of what our beautiful area has to offer!

We make a couple of stops during this 4 hour trip on Bird Island and Crab Island. Remember, if 4 hours sounds intimidating, it’s not! You do not paddle the entire time! During these stops, you are able to see an abundance of wild life, including crabs, fish, horseshoe crabs, birds, and if we’re lucky, sea turtles and the occasional dolphin! We explore the jetties and go for a swim as we enjoy the area. It’s such a good time!

If Bird Island sounds like a spot you want to see, we’ve got you covered! Give us a call at 910.833.2418 and we will set you up!
