The Tides marina is stocked with an assortment of water toys,
like the water bikes pictured above, that make it easy for guests
to get out on the water and burn some calories while having fun on
vacation. Paddleboats, water bikes, paddleboards, kayaks and
canoes are great for boosting the heart rate and increasing muscle
strength while taking in the natural beauty of the peninsula. Pick
up a map of Carter's Creek at our marina office for self-guided
water tours and wildlife likley to be spotted.
Paddleboats, built for two people to pedal together, work the
leg muscles and provide a moderate cardio workout.
Water bikes are faster than paddleboats and easier to learn than
riding a bike. Pedal hard and it's possible to burn 300 calories an
SUP, or standup paddleboarding, is a great way to sculpt the
body. Learn the right moves at our 90-minute
class and take it to the next level with paddleboard yoga.
Paddling a kayak is a terrific upper body-centric cardio
Canoeing is another low-impact activitiy to improve aerobic
fitness and strength while river touring on gentle Carter's
After a good day's workout, snag a seat on the Terrace Lounge with an aperitif
and watch another brilliant summer sunset at the Tides Inn.
