Bogue Sound - Full Moon Paddle

May 29 & 30 | 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
18 Mile Marker: 9404 Coast Guard Rd Emerald Isle, NC 28594
Nothing can be more beautiful than a full moon rising above a Bogue Sound. There is just something magical about moonbeams and water — and sharing the experience of looking at the moon with someone special, even if that someone special is just you. Depart at 7:00pm. The paddle will last about 1.5 hours and kayaks are provided. Couples can each have individual kayaks or a tandem kayak.
