Promoting Conservation through FUN outdoor educational adventures.


Adventure + Fun + Conservation.


EnvirOBX Island Eco-Adventures mission is to promote conservation and respect for our natural resources by creating fun, family-friendly adventures that highlight the diversity and beauty of our coastal wildlife and habitat. Our guides are seasoned watermen who've devoted their lives to living off the sea and land - taking only what they need and giving back everything they can. We work and volunteer with local conservation groups to reach out and promote conservation.

Our guided trips will take you off the beaten path, immerse you in nature, and give you a chance to slow down and appreciate the little things often overlooked in your normal routine. Plus our fun and exciting adventures are created for those of all bring the whole family!

guided kayak fishing

With special use permits from the National Park Service and seasoned guide experience EnvirOBX can put you on fishing holes that many other local fisherman don't even know about. With such a diverse topography and well established migratory fish routes there is always a great opportunity to catch the "big one!" Our guides have devoted countless hours getting away from the crowds and discovering honey oles that only pertinence and hard work can provide. But through our efforts we take the hard part out of the equation. Our guides provide you with not only a fun and exciting experience but educational one as well. We identify the different species of bait and types of water fowl present which indicate the types of fish we may catch. We promote catch n' release, but have no problem putting dinner on the table. We always release more than we keep, allowing the next generation to grow.

All gear, tackle, bait, kayaks and safety equipment provided. Guests are welcome to bring their own equipment. Guests are responsible for their own fishing licenses which are available at all tackle shops. Locations vary depending on weather, time of day... and where the fish are biting!
