Our staffers typically work 5 days per week or 40 hours per week and get a half-hour off for lunch. We spend the first hour, starting at 8:00 a.m., cleaning, servicing, rigging and warming-up the vessels. The customers begin arriving at 9:00 a.m. and throughout the day staff members retrieve boats and give boat orientations to the customers, informing them of any rules, and explaining how to properly return the vessel. Employees also perform routine cleaning, fuel and oil the vessels and patrol the waverunner area. As the day ends (we close between 6:00 and 7:00 p.m.), we de-rig the sailboats, store the windsurfers and kayaks, and secure the waverunners for the night.
Bumper boat attendants help get the customers on and off the boats in the pool. The bumper boats stay open until 10:00 p.m.
When things are slow we stay busy by maintaining the boats and the property. The work may sometimes be physically demanding. Job responsibilities, in order of importance, are as follows:
- Take care of the customers
- Keep the customers safe
- Take care of the equipment
- Take care of the premises
Remember, we are a weather-dependent business. There will be times when we have to shut down and send people home. This may affect your cash flow.
Please keep in mind that we are not a smoker friendly place of employment. Also, asking for a vacation while you are living at the beach in the summer is unacceptable. Do not commit to the job if you require a leave of absence of more than three days.

Where can I find housing for the summer?
One of the most difficult hurdles to overcome is your summer housing. The Outer Banks does not have many summer-long rentals and trying to get a lease for less than four months is extremely difficult. It’s usually easier to search in groups.Apply Now
