Come and enjoy the Albemarle Loop in 2022 with free slip rentals
The many rivers, creeks, and streams that flow into the Albemarle Sound offer unique and fresh opportunities for kayakers, canoeists and paddle boarders. The Albemarle Loop is spotlighting these tributaries as exceptional sites for outdoor recreation. Visitors coming by boat or by car can explore the high-quality marinas and quaint, historic towns of the Albemarle Loop, and enjoy one or more of the 16 paddle trails. Bring your kayak on the deck of your yacht, on the rooftop of your car, or rent one at the various launch ramps.
Canopied, secluded and peaceful streams and creeks, as well as the many rivers, estuaries and even ponds, contain a wealth of birds, aquatic creatures and mammals to observe, study and photograph at close quarters in their natural surroundings – truly a nature lovers dream!
The beauty of exploring these waters is that they suit all levels of paddlers – short trips of just a few hours, longer all-day excursions, or, for the more adventurous, camping platforms for overnight stays on even longer paddles, offer something for everyone.
Come and enjoy the beauty of the area and all it has to offer – you won’t be disappointed. You can also contact Native Girl Kayaking for rentals and more information.
