Things to Do on Ocracoke: Watersports

With the ocean, Pamlico Sound and Silver Lake never more than a 10-minute trip away, watersports sit practically at your fingertips as fun things to do on Ocracoke. Try surfing or bodyboarding in the ocean. Zip about the sound on a Waverunner, inner tube, wakeboard or waterski. Paddlers can travel around the island by standup paddleboard or kayak. Watersports outfitters offer equipment that can be purchased or rented for the milieu of activities. Many of the recreation companies also lead water activities, including guided paddle trips, standup paddleboard yoga sessions, and they even offer lessons if there’s a new activity you want to master.
