Things to Do in Corolla, NC: Water Sports

When people ask about things to do in Corolla, NC, it’s impossible to gloss over the wealth of watersports. Ocean or sound, Corolla’s environment is perfect for people looking to get their feet (or whole body) wet. Surf, skim board, bodyboard, kiteboard, swim or boat in the ocean. The Currituck Sound’s calmer waters offer a setting conducive to families’ watersports activities and those that require less wave action, such as standup paddleboarding, Jet Skiing or kayaking. For a new way of seeing the northern Outer Banks, take a guided paddle trip in a kayak or get a thrill with a parasailing adventure. Plenty of Corolla’s watersports businesses will prepare you for any activity you want to try with their available lessons, tours, activities and even equipment rentals.
