Chesapeake Bay Kayak Camping 3-5 days

 

Our small group, fully-outfitted trips are the perfect introduction to the great adventure of kayak camping, or a longer expedition for more advanced paddlers with their own equipment.

We lead you through the salt marshes of Virginia's Eastern Shore, an Audubon-sanctioned Important Birding Area. We explore small beaches and tidal creeks through Parker's Marsh Natural Area Preserve, and end in the 1680 Colonial port of Onancock, offering dining and historic lodgings for pre/post trip.

A stay on the grounds of an historic estate and an oyster roast can be arranged! 

 

B&B Based Paddling Adventures 3-5 days

 

We turn the weekend into the perfect mix of Eastern Shore nature and small town charm. We'll paddle Onancock Creek at sunset for a beach supper, Chesapeake Bay marshes and seaside islands by day, and reward you at a charming B&B and dinner out in the 1680 Colonial port town of Onancock, VA. Add an introductory tandem hang gliding flight with Virginia Hanggliding, a kayak winery tour with SouthEast Expeditions, a boat trip out to the island community of Tangier, or a post-paddle massage! Lodging is included at an historic, family-run B&B in Onancock that is walking or biking distance to shops, galleries and eateries.

Virginia's Seaside Water Trail 3-7 days

 

Spend a weekend or a week on the Seaside Water Trail along the Virginia Eastern Shore's protected barrier islands. Camping is not allowed on these pristine islands due to bird nesting, so we will arrange land support to take you to a lodge or B&B each evening. We can customize a trip for all abilities, including the full length of the 70-mile peninsula from Chincoteague to Kiptopeke, the longest undeveloped shoreline on the East Coast.
