Outer Banks Gift Guide for Father's Day

Outer Banks Gift Guide for Father's Day

Father’s Day is a special day to celebrate dad! Enhance your upcoming Outer Banks vacation with an Outer Banks-themed Father’s Day gift this year. Surprise him with something he hasn’t experienced in the OBX. He will enjoy creating new memories and perhaps starting a new family tradition with you this summer. Not sure what to get your dad? Don’t worry; we always have you covered. Check out our gift guide below:

Purchase Dad a Fishing License:

Surprise Dad on Father’s Day by giving him an annual or lifetime fishing license. The Coastal Recreational Fishing License is valid for 12 months from purchase and authorizes fishing in coastal and joint waters. Lifetime licenses are also available and are an excellent option for the dad who loves to fish. He will be covered for Outer Banks fishing for the rest of his life! 

Reserve a Tee Time:

The Outer Banks is a golfer’s dream! There are several different courses where Dad can enjoy a round of golf. Choose from the Nags Head Golf LinksSea Scape Golf Links in Kitty Hawk, or The Currituck Club in Corolla. These courses allow you to reserve a tee time in advance, so if Dad already has his Outer Banks vacation planned, you can pre-reserve for his trip!

Outer Banks Restaurant Gift Certificate:

If your dad loves vacationing in the Outer Banks, chances are he has a favorite Outer Banks restaurant. Many restaurants on the OBX offer gift certificates. Contact your dad’s favorite place and surprise him with a gift certificate this Father’s Day. He will enjoy using it during his next OBX vacation.

Reserve a Corolla Wild Horse Tour:

Create vacation memories that you’ll remember for years to come by exploring the 4×4 area of Carova beach in search of the beautiful Corolla Wild Horses! We recommend booking a trip with one of these tour companies. They know how to find a horse and enjoy the horses from a safe distance. They also share tons of excellent knowledge about the area. The best part? They take you in a 4-wheel drive vehicle! Don’t worry about driving on the beach. They handle all of that for you.


Plan an Excursion with Outer Banks Adventure Tours:
