Carolina Outdoors is a part of Kitty Hawk Kites Company located in Duck. You can rent a jet ski, take a kayaking eco tour, go parasailing and many other water sport. This should keep you busy for the day and you'll get a tan at the same time! So bring some money and have as much fun as you can buy! Check out the info listed below for more information.
One of the reasons that I thought this place would be good is that they have a heated indoor pool.
At this time of year, it would be too cold to swim from the beach, and most of the time we were in Duck, there would also have been too much surf. (see photos 4 and 5) I never did use this pool either.
I haven't done any of these things - even if it had been warm enough, I probably would not have done anything more strenuous than a paddle boat ride, although I'd like to do parasailing someday.
But these people appear to have it all for water sports.. They have a store in Duck, but the main stores appear to be in Kitty Hawk (which is probably the one pictured) and Corolla.
They have new and used kayaks, and they do kayak Ecotours. They have surfboards and do surfing instruction. They do parasailing and wind surfing. They rent wave runners, pontoon boats, sailboats, kayaks, and bumper boats.

There is also a heated indoor pool for days when it's raining outside or for guests who visit in the offseason. I made use of the indoor pool the day after I got a bad sunburn where I could enjoy some water without being further exposed to the sun.
Barrier Island Station offers an outdoor pool particularly for guests who visit in high summer. The pool starts out at about 3 feet (1 m.) deep and gradually descends to 10 feet (3 m.)
