Looking for any advice on paddling in the area. heading down for a week in April, Any great spots to check out, any fresh water areas nearby in case a bailout off the ocean for poor conditions is called for. Anyone in the area feel like getting together for a paddle. Any dangerous conditions like tidal rips etc. to be on the lookout for. Any good outfitters in the area I can contact for advice or tours. Any advice at all will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks for the info. Checked out BIK website and now I'm really excited! Looks like great paddling all over the place. I'll be in touch Kudzu and CapeFear as it gets closer. maybe we can get together... it's always fun to meet p-nutters in person for a paddle and a beer (or two)!
I Hope it Works Out|

I've done some paddling in that area; mostly Bear Island and Bear Inlet. I have lots more experience a little way up the coast; around Shackleford Banks, Core Banks, Harker's Island.

April 20th-28th I'll be in Aruba - don't know how that keeps slipping my mind. But other than that, paddling and a few beers is pretty much where I'd like to be. I hope it works out that we can all do some paddling. I'm sure you'll have a great time either way.

Lots of great kayaking near Emerald Isle -- the sounds between the island(s) and the mainland as well as the White Oak River upstream from Swansboro. There are some nicely marked trails from Hammocks Beach State Park near Swansboro leading out to Bear Island as well as another trail heading across the inlet toward Cape Carteret.
