Rick's Jeep Adventures

Attraction details
Owner description: We offer Jeep Rentals to see the Outer Banks Wild Horses. Rick's Jeep Adventures is the only rental company in the Outer Banks that allows you to customize the Jeep the way you like. These options include the choice to put the top down, take the doors off, avoid direct sunlight with a mesh SPF50 Bikini Top and a complimentary iced cooler. Our Jeeps are customized for beach driving, with top of the line AEV lifts from 3 to 5 inches and 17 inch alloy wheels with 35 inch Kevlar sidewalled tires. These additions not only look great but offer superior handling, ground clearance and traction on the beach. Rent from the best and all you need to do is enjoy your ride! Your off-road Jeep adventure lasts a little over 2 hours. The Jeep tour will take you across the pristine 4X4 beaches. Because our Jeep Rentals are "self driven" but "fully guided" we can offer a full money back guarantee to find the horses. Following a guided tour provides you with access to our guides who enjoy sharing local history and information on the Spanish Wild Horses. Our guides are your GPS and can guide you safely around the 6-7 feet deep mud puddles of Carova and keep you safe back behind the dunes. At Rick's Jeeps we care about our local area, so we want to make sure that everyone has fun on the beach with the minimum environmental impact possible. We also want to ensure that the Spanish Mustang Ponies of the Outer Banks stay free and wild for generations to come.

“Fun for the Hubby”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

Having been to Assateague many times, we've seen our share of wild horses. What set this trip apart was that my husband got to drive a jeep on the beach. It was nice to be able to take our retriever along for the adventure. We liked our guides (Dave and Jill) and they really had to work to find the horses. Ultimately they were located in some yards in Carova, and a few were on the beach as we were leaving.

“Better Than Expected !”
Reviewed 16 March 2012

We had a fantastic time on this tour. The staff at Ricks Jeeps were very welcoming and friendly. Dave, our guide was outstanding. Finding us waiting in the parking lot, he welcomed us early and prepped us for our tour. We were treated with respect from the start, and Dave shared his knowledge of history, horses, and the Outer Banks in down-home friendly fashion. Our Jeep ride far down the beach and our search for wild horses
were fun and relaxing. If you're near the ONX, DON'T MISS THIS TOUR !!!

“A must do adventure!!!!!”
Reviewed 6 February 2012

Our tour was awesome!! We went just 2 days before my son deployed overseas with the Navy. We went in without a reservation and Linda did everything she could to fit us in, including giving us the tour herself! My son drove the Jeep behind Linda's lead car. What an incredible day!! We saw the wild horses and even saw a whale off shore. This was a memory making experience that my family will never forget!! Thank you so much!!

“Amazing Time”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

I went with my grandmother, parents, aunt, uncle, and cousins on a week vacation to the OBX. On our last day we decided to go with Rick's Jeep Adventures to see the more unseen parts of the outer banks. Our tour guide, Scott (I think that was his name), was absolutely wonderful! He was knowledgeable but presented the facts in an interesting way. Our group was split into two jeeps (with Scott and Peyton) Even Grandma and the teens had a wonderful time! Like Scott said during our tour, we truly "ended our trip with a bang"!
