It is a bit tricky finding us at the Sanderling Resort and Spa. We always meet at the kiosk beachside, get our paddles and life jackets and then head over to the sound. But it is a great place to paddle. Hunter is great too!!

We are vacationing in Kitty Hawk this year and would like to participate in paddleboarding, paddleboating, or kayaking. None of us have kayaked before. We have 2 (possibly 3) adults and 2 teens. Our son is 17 and has developmental disabilities and cannot swim. Would you all have anything we could adapt for him so he could participate safely with us? The other adults and teen can swim. Thanks! Kate

We had 1 child with developmental disabilities do the tour with us and she seemed to do fine. She was in a tandem kayak with her father who was extremely calm. She seemed to enjoy herself.
