One of the best vantage points to explore Bald Head Island from is the water! Glide through the beautifully unspoiled creeks and marshes in a kayak or canoe to experience the stunning wildlife that inhabit the area. Watch the fish jump, spot the osprey perched in the sea grass, and the elegant egret looking back as you effortlessly float by.

Visitors are welcome to bring their own kayaks and canoes along with them (The mainland ferry landing charges a $15 cargo fee and requires prior notification). Kayak rentals are available for those visitors without their own kayaks who are eager to experience Bald Head Island from the water as well. The cost* for a one-person vessel is $30 per expedition. The cost* for a two-person vessel is $50 per expedition. The cost* for a canoe is $50 per expedition.

Guided safaris’ are available during the months of June, July, and August through Island Passage. Their experienced guides ensure the safaris’ are an enjoyable experience for those of all skills levels.
