OBX Wedding Party Activities
Play a little, it’s the Outer Banks!
The Outer Banks has something for every bride or groom, no matter where their interests lie. The coast teems with adventures in fishing, surfing, hang gliding, golfing, kayak tours, and more. In between your wedding festivities, make sure you take time to explore our remarkable environment.
Head up to Corolla and experience a one-of-a-kind wild horse safari adventure. Tour packages allow you to choose from a guided off-road excursion to see the wild Spanish mustangs or a self-guided tour in a rented four-wheel drive vehicle. If the waves call to you, sign up for personalized lessons with one of the many experienced Outer Banks surfers or stand-up paddle boarders. Or explore the sound in a kayak or from a kite board. If you’re already in the know, rent a board and ride the wind and waves on your own. The island is full of rental companies and instructors.
The Outer Banks is a year-round fisherman’s haven. There is fishing, fishing, and more fishing. Book a charter boat to experience inshore and offshore angling with your buddies, or head out to the beach or one of many fishing piers with your rod in hand. You can rent what you need on site if you haven’t packed any gear. Piers generally offer food and beverages to enhance the experience. Be sure to inquire about fishing permits at your local tackle shops or visit www.ncwilidlife,org for more details.
Touring the majestic lighthouses of the Outer Banks is a great way to explore history and take in an incredible view. From Corolla to Ocracoke, coastal beacons provide great stopovers, climbing adventures, and photo possibilities.
No matter what your preference, you and your wedding party or guests are bound to find the Outer Banks a memorable place of adventure, natural beauty, and fun. Don’t forget to take your camera – waterproof if needed – to savor your memories for years to come!
