Located in the middle of a beach paradise, the Outer Banks are complete with 200 miles of islands, dolphins, tropical beaches, and much more. Kitty Hawk Watersports is intentionally located near one of the best sailing spots the Outer Banks has to offer-- Roanoke Sound near milepost 16 is renowned for providing high winds and shallow waters to its sailboat enthusiasts. In fact, the sailing conditions are so good that it is also notorious for being the old stomping ground of the legendary pirate Blackbeard.
If you've never operated a sailboat before, you're in luck! At Kitty Hawk Water Sports, we offer beginner sailing lessons with our Hobie Cat sailboats. An experienced sailing instructor will start with the basics and spend 2 hours teaching you how to sail. To learn more, contact us about our sailboat lessons.

We offer three types of sailboat rentals, each with their own advantages and prices.

The Hobie Cat Wave—13’ long, the Wave was designed to mix speed with agility and stability. Spacious enough for the whole family, but compact enough to be easily controlled, this sailboat is the perfect size.
The Hobie Cat Bravo—Measuring 12’ in length, the Bravo has a large sail that allows it to utilize even the lightest breeze yet stay manageable in strong winds, as well. The Bravo is a timeless model, perfect for both the seasoned sailors and the inexperienced.
