The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man.  

“We are a small boutique tour operator; a lifestyle operation that specializes in small intimate guided excursions.   A back to basics, a life less complicated touring outfitter celebrating those who love nature, enjoy being active outdoors and embrace the simple life.”

Lighthouse WaterSports is all about fun and adventure with a level of purposeful meaning included in everything we do.  We lead responsible tours to natural areas that promote bio-cultural diversity with the intention to help protect the natural and cultural heritage of our beautiful region.  Our tours are about achieving greater understanding and appreciation for nature and the local history of coastal North Carolina.

Observing nature, studying history, viewing wildlife are all constant reminders that it is the simplest things in life that reward us with the most memorable experiences.   That it is truly the small things, the simple things in life that matter.  Less is definitely more and we believe that one of the best ways to explore and enjoy life is experiencing the outdoors on something that floats; be it a boat, a kayak or stand up paddle board.  ‘Lighthouse WaterSports’ symbolizes that spirit of freedom and fun. 


Nature teaches us that the diversity of life is made up not only of the diversity of plants and animal species, habitats and ecosystems found on the planet, but also of the diversity of human cultures.
