See the Best of the Outer Banks on a Guided Jet Ski Tour

August 9, 2019 | Jet Ski Tour

Our jet ski tour is definitely a popular activity. I think, however, the primary myth is that customers assume that the tour is a slow, boring trip around the sound.

The tour covers at least 15 miles across the water.  On occasion, the guide will stop and talk briefly, but he/she will keep you moving.
