Τι θα κάνετε

Paddle with the authors of "Kayaking for Everyone." You'll meet us in our kayak shop at Onancock Wharf, located in the 1906 Steamboat Ticket Office, where once passengers embarked onto steamboats bound for Baltimore. In the present day, we'll outfit you in kayak gear while giving an introduction to the history of this 1680 Colonial port. After an on-land paddle school we'll launch kayaks from our floating dock onto the sheltered waters of Onancock Creek. On this leisurely, 2-hour paddle trip we'll peek into the backyards of historic homes dating to to the 1700s. Your guide will narrate the history of the region, from native peoples, through Capt. John Smith, schooner and steamboat days to the present. Along the way you'll learn about the ecology, plants, birds and shellfish of the Chesapeake Bay. Afterwards, step onto the adjacent outdoor dining deck of Mallards restaurant for lunch or a drink.
Beginners and children welcome.**
**Children's price of $25 is for under age 15 in a tandem with an accompanying adult paying full price.
Other things to note
We will be in contact with you if there are any weather issues. We do paddle in light rain, but not if there's lightning nearby.
Please wear shoes that can get wet and drip-dry type shorts or pants. Bring water, sunscreen, a hat and a rainjacket just in case.

We'll meet you in our charming kayak shop located at 2 King St., Onancock, inside the 1906 historic Steamboat Ticket Office. We'll paddle by many beautiful homes, including the oldest house in town, 1769 Scott Hall, Sears catalogue homes, and the impressive Mount Prospect. You'll watch fishing and crab boats collect their harvest, and visit a secret nature cove to look for wading birds, bald eagles and periwinkle snails.

While I found the tour relaxing and fun, I expected the trip to include more history and information generally. From the description I thought we would hear in-depth history of the region, see/hear more about the homes, travel further through the waterways etc. It was a mellow, easy kayak and I enjoyed learning about the town and some of the natural features.

This was a really fun start to our week in Cape Charles area. Gentle morning workout combined with sense of history of the area and wildlife of the bay.

Our guide, Will, was patient, personable, and knowledgeable. We are not very experienced kayakers, but he made us comfortable and confident as he offered kayak lessons while sharing his knowledge regarding the history and biodiversity of the area. All in all, a very enjoyable experience!

I have returned to do a third tour with Bill and Mary this year. Our first tour with them was in 2017. My daughter and I have been coming back because of their excellent customer service, expertise in the area and kayaking, and the peaceful Onancock area. Now we have introduced other members of our family, older and young, to kayaking with this wonderful team. I recommend you and family or friends try it! Even if you have never tried it before. You will not regret it.

Bill was a very considerate and reassuring guide. He knows the area well and is passionate about his sport. AND WE DID NOT TIP OVER!

We had will as our tour guide, he made the experience ten times better! We were a younger group so a little less interested in the history. He tailored the whole experience to us. All of us had never been on a kayak so it took a minute to get all of in the groove. Highly highly recommend!!!
