Social Distancing in a Kayak

The Outer Banks is as beautiful as ever. Now that we’ve started our season, we’ve seen a flood of visitors to the island. With these larger crowds, many visitors are looking for safe, socially distant activities to do on the Outer Banks. So some of our crew members are practicing social distancing by experiencing some of Kitty Hawk Kites’ adventures. Follow along for inspiration and see all the fun things you can still do on the Outer Banks. Today Megan went out kayaking with her dog, Pilot!

We offer guided kayak tours in single and tandem kayaks for families looking to explore the great outdoors together. We also rent kayaks! Go out on your own in a single kayak or share your trip in a tandem kayak.

Both sit-in kayaks and sit-on-top kayaks are available! Sit-in kayaks are traditionally used in the sound of the Outer Banks whereas sit-on-top kayaks are more versatile and can be used in both the sound and ocean. It is recommended that only professionals take sit-in kayaks into the Ocean. They are great for exploring–they come with a comfortable padded seat and back support.

Share the fun!

When you go out on your adventure, make sure you take some pictures or videos. Tag us @kittyhawkkites on social media to share your joy for kayaking and for a chance to be featured!

Kite Flying for Social Distancing

Even though travel restrictions have been lifted, we are still taking safety concerns seriously. So we are putting together a collection of our favorite activities that you can do while social distancing. We hope you’ll take these ideas as inspiration. It’s our mission to create fun and memorable activities for you and your family. Even when we have to stay six-feet apart, we are determined to teach the world to fly! So of course, we had to start with kite flying!

Flying kites is a great activity to do by yourself or with your close friends and family. And you can do it anywhere with a little wind. You can find kites of every shape, style, color, and experience level in our stores and online.

Looking for help on getting your kite in the air? We have a page full of kite flying tips. Still having trouble? Visit our trouble-shooting page to fly your kite effectively.

Share the fun!

When you take to the sky, make sure you take some pictures or video of your kite in action. Tag us @kittyhawkkites on social media to share your joy for flying and for a chance to be featured!
