Thanks for the great review and getting out on the water with me. Kayaking the calm waters of Ginguite Creek and the surrounding marsh trails are perfect this time of year for all! I look forward to kayaking with you two real soon.

Beautiful wildlife tour filled with plenty of birds including a blue heron and swimming deer and luckily no snakes. Cool morning glide under the trees with informative guide Jonathan was a relaxing way to spent a Sunday morning

We took the guided Kitty Hawk Maritime Forest kayak tour - it was incredibly beautiful - the water served as a perfect mirror for the tall pines and other plants. It was a wonderful part of our OBX vacation.

Thanks for the great review. If you liked the reflection off the water on Ginguite Creek, check out the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge on your next kayak tour, these waters are almost coffee colored offering mirror imagery. Incredible for the photographers.
