North Island Surf and Kayak's durable and dependable rentals transport paddlers into the natural world of Georgia's barrier islands. Kayaks zip through inland rivers, bays, and sinuous creeks with equal deftness and gusto. Adventurers can load the versatile vessels onto cars with the aid of a willing staff or cast off from North Island's floating dock to explore the surrounding territory. Navigate the marshes of nearby Little Tybee Island or climb to the top of Cockspur Beacon and misdirect hapless mariners. From the perch of a kayak, vigilant oar-pullers can commune with the region's native species, including dolphins, otters, and a bevy of avian friends. In addition to the pointy aquatic vessel, each rental comes with a paddle, life jacket, comfortable seat back, and flushing toilet.

And its stock of apparel and accessories, which includes waders, sunglasses, and camouflage hats, equips intrepid explorers for any outdoor endeavor.

Weekend evening tours tempt romance beneath the moonlight, whereas history tours explore covered bridges and Civil War hot spots. Kayak fishing trips come in both day and overnight versions, in which anglers search for bass or etowah and cherokee darters, which are native only to this area of the world.
