Kayak Fishing Tours

One of the fasting growing sport fishing segments in the United States is kayak fishing and Summertide Adventure Tours is excited to meet the needs of our fishermen clients by offering kayak fishing tours throughout the Sunset Beach and Ocean Isle Beach marsh areas.


As any fisherman knows, you have to go where the fish are. Kayaks offer the ability to access areas where many boaters fear to tread, with agile control and just a 4 inch draft, kayaks offer the ability to find those remote locations where few fisherman can access.


Our kayak fishing guides are seasoned fisherman with intimate knowledge of the marsh areas and more importantly have an personal index of “secret” fishing holes. You don’t need to bring a thing (unless you have a luck rod), our services include everything you need for an exceptional day of fishing and fun including vessels, paddles, life vests, safety equipment, professional guidance and tackle.

Charles “Rip” Vanwinkle has a passion for the sport, migrating his passion from offshore and near shore sport fishing to the waterways between the islands of Sunset Beach and Ocean Isle Beach. Growing up on Sunset Beach has given Rip the experience and knowledge to make a kayak fishing with Summertide Adventure Tours a rewarding experience.
