You can explore calm waters around tidal creeks around Harkers Island and the mainland on a Paddle Board - which is sort of an oversized surfboard that you paddle like a canoe.

You can watch wildlife - birds, porpoises, fish you move along on your board. You start out on your knees on your board - then progress to a standing position. The paddling is similar to canoeing - with a side-to-side stroke.

Paddle Boards are made for every age, every size and various levels of skill (about l8 different boards in all). Some boards will accommodate two persons - a parent and child; others are equipped to carry gear (great if you're going to spend the day out on the water), and some are designed for speed.

Paddle Boarding takes you back to the childlike mindset of living in the moment.

NOTE: Around the Harkers Island/Browns Island area- - avoid Paddle Boarding over oyster rocks - which could be hazardous to your safety.

*Paddle Boards can be rented from:
