Fatty's treats and tours is an exciting new business on the outer banks! We have 24 flavors of Hershey's ice cream, milkshakes, smoothies, shaved ice, gifts, toys, and our always popular T-shirts with Fatty the seagull! If your looking for a way to burn off those calories or just a fun way to spend the day with the family Fattys is conveniently located on some of the best kayaking grounds on the entire outerbanks! Our tours take you on a trip through time to visit the very spot the English first landed in the new world. There are sting rays, and fish at play in the water, and egrets, pelecians, and heron to watch in the air! Fattys is an experience for everyone of all ages so come out and support locals, and have a great time!

Great time! Evan and Kendra are great tour guides. saw some rays. Good time had by all. The weather was good but thunderstorms in the distance obscured the sunset. I would recommend the evening tour because the sunsets are usually awesome.
