We rented a paddle board for the week. It was a fun way to enjoy the ocean. The rental was simple, the item dropped off at our beach rental and picked up. No hassle, great condition. It added a fun activity to our week. Thanks!

The office is in Nags Head and the marina is in Manteo. They are about 10-15 minutes from each other. You check in at the Nags Head location and they weigh you. Then you meet the boat in Manteo.
