About us

Experience a new side of the OBX!


Captain Len has been on the water all his life and comes from a long line of captains. Dividing his time between Virginia and the Outer Banks for the last 40 years, he uses his vast experience to create boat tours that show the unseen, sound-side of the Outer Banks. On our tours, you’ll be riding on a 25 foot Sportsman Centre Console with bathroom, navigation system, comfortable seating, and a cooler provided for your drinks and snacks.

Visiting the Outer Banks with his family over the years, Captain Len noticed there were not many ways to get out on the water. When he brought along his own boat, he realized so many beautiful sites are only accessible by boat or are really enhanced by viewing from the water. These experiences have shown him the real Outer Banks lifestyle. Captain Len realized this was something he could bring to other families, couples and friends visiting the Outer Banks. The opportunity to see the Islands from the water just like the first settlers would have done. Enjoying the scenery on a loop tour. Spotting dolphins. Doing some fishing. Escaping to a sandbar to soak up the sun with friends and family. Taking in the stunning Outer Banks sunsets from the water. Seeing the Bodie Island lighthouse from the water – who knew you could even do that? Outer Banks Excursions was created to bring you the amazing experiences that make this part of North Carolina so memorable, and your time here so special.


Whether you want to enjoy a loop tour, do some fishing, soak up the sun on a remote sandbar, enjoy the breathtaking sunsets or just enjoy being out on the water, our tours are sure to be an unforgettable part of your trip, with memories to last a lifetime.

We have curated these tours to capture the most beautiful sights of the Outer Banks. Choose between three scenic loops: Manteo Waterfront, Oregon Inlet Sandbars or Bodie Island Lighthouse, that can be taken as part of our morning or afternoon tours. Our Sunset Tour is a 3 hour ride that will put you right in front of one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world, while enjoying the scenery along the way.

If you have a specific sight or trip in mind, email us to discuss a custom tour! Maybe you want to do some night-time stargazing, a sunrise excursion, some near-shore fishing – whatever it is that floats your boat, email us your ideas and we’ll set up a call to discuss your custom tour.

Let's go on an adventure,
