Sailboat Rentals

All of the sailboats at Kitty Hawk Watersports are Hobie Cats — the No. 1 recreational sailboat in the world. Hop on to the tramp of one of our well-maintained vessels and feel the thrill of a catamaran. *Note: Sailboats must be skippered by an experienced sailor.

At 16 feet in length, this sailboat has room for you, your crew, and your lunch.

Set Sail for Adventure

Hobie Cats are clearly the most exciting recreational sailboat on the market. When you feel that first gust of wind pull you along, you will be hooked. Come out and see why Hobie Cats are so much fun. Our sailing playground is the Roanoke Sound. Come down to milepost 16 and experience the winds that brought the Wright Brothers to the Outer Banks.

More Than Just Sailboats

Kitty Hawk Watersports doesn’t just rent sailboats, so if traveling at the whim of the wind doesn’t appeal, we encourage you to explore our other watersports activities and services:


Take a break from sunbathing and get active on the water by renting jet skis, parasails, kayaks, surfboards, pontoon boats, or stand-up paddleboards.


Explore the Outer Banks’ natural amenities with tours conducted on jet skis and kayaks.

The best way to see Nags Head, Kitty Hawk, and the rest of the Outer Banks is from the water—whatever your mode of transportation. For more information on sailboat rentals or other equipment at Kitty Hawk Watersports, call us today at (252) 441-2756 or book online now.
