looking at going to Cape Hatteras this summer - anyone who has been there - in the sound - the flatwater side - what is on the bottom? - is it sand, or mud/grass or what? - the water doesn't look so clear - and I have a daughter who gets a bit freaked by that and what is under her feet!!
any other tips welcome too - looking like we will sort out our own trip - as no holiday companies seem to go there.
thanks

Hi,

we have been running trips there for a few years now.

The summer is not the best time of the year as it gets pretty hot and sticky with a lot of midges too.
Best time is May or October
The sound side is genarally warm/shallow for miles with a mainly sandy bottom...great for learning as you can kite for miles out and if it all goes pete tong you can simply pack down and walk back!
