What to Expect on Our Kure Beach Kayak Tour at Zeke’s Island
On this tour, you’ll make your way through the calm, glassy, glistening waters along Zeke’s Island. The effort required on this tour depends on the waters. If you’re looking for calmer, glassy waters, we recommend that you book during the early morning or evening hours. Keep in mind that the waters are somewhat unpredictable. Your kayak tour guide will take you through the bays and marsh creeks that separate Fort Fisher and Bald Head Island, and you’ll be surrounded by tranquil wildlife and nature. Our Kure Beach guided kayak tours are focused on sight-seeing and exploring, so we’ll stop several times throughout our journey so that you can explore on foot!

The water is also very shallow, ranging from 6 inches to 4 feet deep depending on the tides and time of day you book, and a life jacket will be provided to each kayaker.

Part of planning your kayaking adventure in Kure Beach should be to bring the right items with you! We recommend that you bring a foldable mini-lunch bag that you can store a few snacks in. You’ll need this to be soft so that it can easily be tucked away in your kayak. You’ll also want to wear shoes that are secured to your feet and that you don’t mind getting wet, as you may be required to wade into the water. Be sure to apply sunscreen and bug spray! Cell phones are welcome, but be sure to secure them in a Ziploc bag. We are not responsible for lost items on this trip.
