Bear Island Sea Kayak 

Eat lunch as the Atlantic Ocean waves crash nearby, sea gulls flutter overhead as you soak in the sun and get sand 'tween your toes. You'll be so relaxed you might not want to leave Bear Island. 
You’ll paddle about 3 easy miles among the salt marsh to reach the sandy shores of Bear Island. We’ll duck back into a deep cove only accessible by kayak and then walk 20 yards to see the immensity of the Atlantic Ocean. Cool your heels (or whole body) as you each eat lunch on this unspoiled beach (and keep an eye out for Bottlenose dolphins swimming off shore).

Friday Floats

Your ability to stand on two feet means you can Standup Paddle Board (SUP)! The view from a wide, stable board is remarkably different; no wonder SUP is the fastest growing paddle sport. 
If you don't want to SUP, you can chose to kayak instead. See the turtles, fish, and what's over the river bank. If you get hot, jump right in the water or sit sideways and dip your legs in. 
A Saturday Afternoon Float is perfect for relaxing after a long week. Just show up and go! 
You'll paddle a short water trail within an hour of ECU. We may take you by the historic waterfront of Little Washington, paddle up the shady Cherry Run, or ramble down the remarkably beautiful Tar. You'll get about 2-3 hours of on water paddling. 
Meet at 12pm in the Rec Center Adventure Program and arrive back around 6-630pm. 
Trip includes all equipment, transportation & instruction. Beginners & families welcome.
