Things To Do in Duck, NC: Watersports

Watersports and aquatic activities tend to be the recreation of choice in Duck and Southern Shores because between the sound and ocean, it’s nearly impossible to not be out there all the time in the warmer weather – in fact many people are. The watersports companies bring dreams of playing on the water to life, offering an array of mechanisms, in a variety of styles, for doing so. Choose a board and surf, windsurf or standup paddleboard. Climb aboard a boat to kayak in the sound, sail or kick back on a catamaran cruise. Crest over the waves via Jet Ski, water skis, wakeboard or inner tube. Fly high with a parasailing trip. However you want to make memories on the water, Southern Shores and Duck, NC, have hundreds of experiences for all watersports interests.
