Take a kayak trip
One of the best adventures on Topsail Island is exploring the waterways around the island by kayak. Kayaks are great because they're easy to learn to use and can allow single or tandem users to enjoy the water. There are several ways to enjoy kayaking. You can take a guided tour which is a fun way to see the waterways. This is an especially great way for novices to enjoy the sport. If you like fishing, Kayaking offers a great way to fish off shore, on local estuaries, and rivers. Of course, you can also rent kayaks at several locations on the island and head out on the water yourself. We even have homes with docks so you can kayak right from your Topsail Island vacation home.
Discover our history
Not all adventures are the same. Sometimes the best adventures are those that open your mind and let you experience something new. One thing many folks like to do is learn about the history of an area. Topsail Island has a unique place in both North Carolina's and the United State's history. Did you know that there was a secret missile program base here on Topsail Island? We don't want to give away too much of the fun that you can discover, but let's just say you'll want to spend a day at the Missiles and More Museum. This is the perfect escape for a few hours on a hot day or even a good way to spend a rainy day.
Discover jet skiing
Few things are as exciting as jetting across the water with the wind in your hair. Jet skiing is not only fun at high speed but also can be fun for exploring the waterways. Jet skis are not what you may remember them to be. Nowadays jet skis can hold up to three people and are much more stable. Jet skis can be rented for as short as an hour or as long as you like. You must be 18 years old to rent a jet ski. Each jet ski holds one adult and two small children or two adults. Go ahead get ready to hit the water. Let the folks at Surf City Jet Ski Rentals help you discover your Topsail Island jet ski adventure.
Have you always wanted to ride the waves and hang ten? If so, this is the year to make that dream a reality. Surfing is not as easy as it looks, but with the help of the folks at the Surf City Surf School, you too, can be riding the waves in no time.

Try stand-up paddleboarding... SUP
Paddleboarding is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. The sport is easy to learn, great exercise and offers participants a unique look at the waters off Topsail Island. If you are unfamiliar with SUP, picture a long wide stable surfboard that you stand on. You then use a paddle to propel you along. Not only is stand up paddleboarding a great way to see the water, it is also a fantastic form of exercise. Many SUP boards are big enough for two people or even your dog! What could be cooler than paddling along with your dog?
