We give generously in both time and resources to environmental awareness organizations each year. When you Paddle with us, you are helping to save the environment. We appreciate your support!
Our Shem Creek tours paddle around the tidal salt marsh of Shem Creek and the waters surrounding Crab Bank Island. Conditions dictate where we go. This is done to ensure safety and as pleasurable of an experience as possible. We offer the tours by kayak or stand up paddleboard. Kayak tours are our most popular, and both single and tandems are available. On the other hand, the perspective one gets from SUP is amazing. You can see into the water easier than in a kayak which means you can spot stingrays, fish and other wildlife quicker. Dolphins are often seen on Shem Creek and they seem to love breaching next to groups of paddleboards so close you could touch them, but don’t.
Our tours use lightweight Werner and Harmony Carbon/Fiberglass/Plastic Paddles and 70+ high end Wilderness Systems and Perception kayaks. Nature Adventure kayaks range from 13′ – 17′ long and are a variety of sit inside and sit on top kayaks. We make every effort to accommodate your preference and body type.
Restrictions: Ages 4 and up welcome. Ages 14 and up can paddle in single kayaks if desired. 13 and under must be in a Tandem 2 person kayak with someone 14 or older. Minors under the age of 17 must be accompanied by an Adult over 18 years of age.
