An OBX original!!


Its never to windy to Paddle at Corolla Watersports. We came up with the ultimate way to beat those summer winds and still enjoy Corolla on a kayak or SUP. We take you by boat upwind as much as 3 miles. We then pick a calm protected spot to get you into your choice of single or double kayak or SUP. You then are free to cruise with the wind at your back at your own pace back to our dock. This has become very popular, everyone loves it. We take the frustration out of paddling against the wind and current, so you maximize your enjoyment on the water. All ages and experience levels welcome.


Also, you get to take a really fun Corolla Boat Cruise, maybe even with “Winnie”, our super charismatic dock dog.

What People Say?

This is our 2nd year coming back to Corolla Watersports! The wave runners were so much fun! We had a blast! The staff is absolutely amazing! They give good through directions and are very friendly. Can't wait for next year and another adventure at CW! P.S Winnie is THE BEST!

I’ve been coming down for 5 years now, and I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else. They have everything greatly organized, plus the best wave runners, pontoons, paddle boards, and kayaks. The staff is well mannered and will help with everything I need. We highly recommend the waverunner tour and the sunset cruise Corolla Watersports is first class all the way
