Emerald Isle, situated on the western end of the Bogue Banks, is a beach paradise with numerous things to do. There is no shortage of water sports to choose from; jet skiing/wave runner rentals and tours, parasailing and kayaking and SUPing are just a few.
Stand up Paddle Boards (SUPs) and kayaks are a great mode of transportation offering paddlers a way to navigate the local waterways and islands only accessible by boat. Local Emerald Isle outfitters offer kayak and SUP tours where experienced and knowledgeable guides offer insight into the coastal environment as well as kayak and SUP rentals. Both adventures offer a glimpse into the beauty of the coastal waterways and the opportunity to see local marine life, like the beloved dolphin and turtle up close and personal.
Another way to get around this laid back coastal community is by renting a bike or scooter; so feel the wind in your hair and leave your car in the driveway. For the adrenaline seekers Emerald Isle also offers parasailing and jet ski adventures. Fly high above the beaches, or crash through the surf, both are guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
Feel like exploring the waterways surrounding the Emerald Isle? Then rent a boat and grab your crew to set out for a day of adventure. Try captaining your vessel to uninhabited Bear Island; only accessible by boat Bear Island guarantees some quiet time relaxing on the white beaches or exploring the island.
So no matter what activities you want to do on your vacation, Emerald Isle has it all!
