Paddleboarding is best when its experienced in calm waters surrounded by a variety of wildlife.  The perfect place to find both calm water and a natural habitat swarming with life, is in the salt marshes surrounding Wrightsville Beach! 

We have lot’s of winding marshes along our coastline. And one of the best ways to explore the salt marshes and see the coastal ecosystem is by standup paddleboarding. For many fish and shellfish species, the salt marsh is their nursery. As you glide through the winding waterways, you will see an abundance of wildlife. Sting rays, crabs, dolphins, flounder, egrets, herons and multitudes of other creatures live and feed in the salt marshes. The salt marsh is serene and relaxing, and allows one to immerse themselves into nature. However, don’t get too relaxed. The salt marsh is dynamic in it’s own way, and always changing with the tides and the seasons.
