Kayaking the Eastern North Carolina Shoreline

Ocean Kayaking for the first time was quite a unique experience for Val and me. We started in Beaufort, NC from one of many very nice public boat ramps and proceeded around Parrot Island and Bird Shoals where we saw many different and unique species of birds not found further inland or accessible from the mainland by foot.

It was a very typical September/October day with temperatures in the mid 80’s as we made our way across the channel to Shackleford Island, a shell collectors dream!  On Shackleford we had lunch and enjoyed observing the wild Spanish mustangs, thought to have swum ashore off sinking ships in the 17th century.

Seeing the shoreline of eastern NC is incredible and highly recommended!
