There are so many different types of water sports, there’s sure to be one you will enjoy. Some, like kayaking and paddleboarding, are peaceful and relaxing and yet give you an upper body workout, depending on how you paddle and how long you’re out. If you’re experienced with water sports on the calm water you may find ocean kayaking and paddle-boarding to be a bit more challenging.
Renting a kayak or paddleboard and heading out for an afternoon is a great way to explore the local waterways. If the big ocean is more than you want to tackle because of the waves, check out the Intracoastal Waterway. Or put in at Jinks Creek and follow the channel down to Tubbs Inlet. There’s a lot of exploring you can do around this area and if you enjoy nature be sure to check out what’s hanging out along the shoreline.
