Kayaking, Canoeing, and SUP
Situated in the middle of the Inner Banks of Eastern NC, Greenville and Pitt County are fortunate to have several waterways, creeks, swamps, lakes, and ponds to explore! Book a guided tour or rent a kayak, canoe, paddleboat, or SUP board from local outfitters and launch from the Greenville Town Common or Port Terminal in Greenville. Paddle around the lakes at River Park North or the ponds at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences at A Time for Science- Grifton Campus. Spend the night at any of the three Pitt County camping platforms on the Pamlico-Tar River Water Trail. The Tar River is generally a peaceful slow-moving waterway shaded by beautiful old-growth trees with tributary creeks and tupelo and cypress swamps to explore! Enjoy wildlife sightings along the banks of deer, beavers, bald eagles, herrings, and more!
