Mahanaim Adventures offers Birder a unique kayaking adventure that is focused on getting you to birding hot spots that are only accessible by kayak. Our experienced kayak & birding guides know all the local hot spots for birding in the Cape Fear area. Our goal is to help you spot those elusive coastal and migratory birds on your birding list. We provide all the guides, kayaks, paddles and safety gear. We provide both single and tandem kayaks that provide you a stable platform on the water so you can enjoy watching all of those beautiful birds. Most of our kayaking locations are identified on the NC Birding Trail, however we do have some locations that are off the beaten path for most birders. Our locations for our guided birding/kayaking adventure are the Fort Fisher Basin, Zeke’s Island Reserve, Masonboro Island, and Carolina Beach State Park, Town Creek, Moores Creek National Battlefield, Holly Shelter Creek and the Black River.
