About: This is the last step to make an all inclusive experience in the Outer Banks for the water sports enthusiasts. Those who visit the property for lessons, camps or gear would always ask, where should we stay??? Watermen's Retreat was built for all of those who wanted to stay on site after being on the water all day!! REAL Watersports created ‘on-the-fly’ coaching to use personal watercraft as a teaching tool so instructors can be with students 100 percent of the time and make the experience as fun and safe as possible. The approach earned REAL Outside magazine’s “Top 10 Adventure Camps in the World” distinction in 2004. Ever since they’ve been helping turn an extreme sport into a mainstream activity. Developing the sport, instruction and now accommodation makes Watermen's Retreat the best place to rest after a full day playing on the Pamlico Sound or Atlantic Ocean.

Why Waves, NC, USA:
Whether you are traveling to REAL and Cape Hatteras to learn to kite, surf or standup paddle, or you are traveling with a mixed group, some kiters, some not, some surfers…You know the drill! Living right on top of the action allows everyone to do what they want to do, when they want to do it! Watermen’s Retreat takes the “ski in and ski out” concept of mountain sports and applies it to the water. Everyone in your group will be happy all the time and nobody will ever have to be chauffeured anywhere.

The Unique Benefits at this Hotel:
Watermen’s Retreat amenities include the REAL Flagship Store, REAL Lesson Center, Gear Rental Shop, Watermen's Bar & Grill, private grass launch at The Slick, Gear Storage, Wireless Internet and more!
