Bring your camera on a breezy May Day and be astounded by the crush of colors in the sky from tens of kitesurfers at a time plying the sound with their beautiful power kites.

Perfect spot for families with young children or a couple with a dog. Nice shallow water make it easier going for the kids or pets.

Canadian Hole may be an unfamiliar term to the typical, laid-back Hatteras Islander vacationer, but to windsurfers around the world, the phrase invokes thoughts of an exact, postcard-perfect locale on the Outer Banks, where windsurfing and water sports conditions are truly at their global best,...More

No matter what direction winds come from - you will get the most of it at the Canadian hole. Although not the place with most flat water around the Hatteras spots , it is the best for the clean and strong wind!

Always enjoy seeing the enthusiasts on the water, with either their parasails or boards. Breeze is very good and the participants can really scoot along.

We stopped at this day use area because the grand kids wanted to spend some time in the water and not have to worry about waves wiping them out. What a great little gem of a place. The kids could walk out into the sound,...More

You can rent different water sports items from Ocean Atlantic Rentals in Avon, right up the road. I believe single kayaks rent for the week starting at $69.
