Water covers 70% of the globe, fills 50% of an optimist’s glass, and encompasses 100% of the human head when it gets stuck inside a fish bowl. Feel positively aquatic with today’s deal: for $79, you get a one-hour waverunner rental (a $99 value/hour) and kayak rentals for two (a $31 value/person) at Hatteras Watersports in Salvo (a $161 total value).
Marshlands rich in wildlife and the warm, shallow waters of Pamlico Sound surround Hatteras Watersports, making it easy for adventurers to climb aboard a two-person 110-horsepower Yamaha waverunner. Hatteras’s professional staff keeps its puddle hoppers tuned up for top performance and guides newbie pilots with free instruction, safety briefings, and optional mind-melds. For a more contemplative outing, a pair of Hatteras’s ocean kayaks lets you and a favorite UPS deliveryman tour lush wetlands and marsh ecosystems ruled by benevolent swamp things. Mussels and oysters reside among the grass, surrounded by waters rich in mullet, flounder, and the occasional diving otter. Great egrets, blue herons, and the rare osprey enliven the skies, and sharp-eye paddlers may spot hermit and horseshoe crabs scuttling the waterway’s sandy floors.
Between water expeditions, Hatteras visitors can relax on a large lawn or the sound's sandy beach, stretch limbs on the volleyball court, or recharge with lunches of gum and bagel pizzas in the picnic area. A restroom equipped with hot showers washes off the day's exertions and temporary tattoos.
Hatteras Watersports Salvo
Overlooking the Pamlico Sound, Hatteras Watersports Salvo gives Outer Banks visitors an opportunity to explore the area from a new perspective. A fleet of eight Yamaha Waverunner jet skis sits at the ready, beckoning guests who want to feel the thrill of a 110-horsepower engine propelling them across the water. Alternately, a Hobie Wave catamaran eschews engines in favor of wind power, allowing as many as four adults or one homesick walrus to effortlessly sail out toward the horizon. For a completely different experience altogether, Hatteras Watersports Salvo also rents kayaks to individuals looking to explore nearby marshes and wetlands while keeping their eyes peeled for the area's abundant wildlife. Those looking to walk the waves can rent a standup paddleboard and cruise the shorelines while basking in sunshine. Hatteras Watersports Salvo's sprawling lawn keeps groups occupied before or after aquatic outings with a picnic area, a volleyball court, and even hot showers for rinsing off at the end of the day.
