Kayak rental company hosts eclipse viewing party from Tar River

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) -While others watched from their lawn chairs and porches, some in Eastern Carolina watched the eclipse from the water.

Knee Deep Adventures in Greenville hosted a solar eclipse paddle. People could board kayaks to watch the eclipse from the Tar River.

Co-owner Megan Joyner was thrilled to be starting off their kayak season.

“We have the solar eclipse happening you know and we wanted to take advantage of the warm weather. We are starting off our kayak season and it’s timed out perfectly for the launch with the eclipse,” says Joyner.

The group started paddling at Port Terminal and went to Wildwood Inlet. The participants were also given protective eyewear.
