About Us

Stillwater Kayaks, Inc. is a small, family run business. We pride ourselves on providing great, personal service and wonderful kayaking experiences.

Located at beautiful Northwest Creek Marina adjacent to The Resort at Fairfield Harbour, we are six miles down-river from historic New Bern, North Carolina and 18 miles up the Neuse River from the Intracoastal Waterway. Whether you are a seasoned kayaker or ready for your first experience, Stillwater Kayaks can meet your paddling needs! We offer smaller more maneuverable, and stable fishing Single kayaks, as well as Tandem (double) kayaks, that allow you to have the on-the-water experience you're looking for! Of course, we provide all the necessities: bottled water, map, paddles, and PFDs (life jackets) for all sizes including children and med-large dogs.

Our 2-hour rentals are perfect for the occasional or novice kayaker, with ample time to explore the quiet waters and enjoy the sights and sounds. Northwest Creek provides the quiet experience of pristine flora and fauna, with adjoining Spring Creek offering a unique perspective of the Fairfield Harbour community. Belted Kingfisher, Great Blue Heron, Bald Eagle, Pelliated Woodpecker, and Osprey are frequently sighted along the waterways populated with towering Cypress and Spanish-moss draped trees, with the occasional appearance of River Otter, Deer, Fox, and even Dolphin!!



Come Relax! Enjoy our beautiful waters... and don't forget to ask about our Eco-Tours and our Sunset-Full Moonrise trips!
