Why you should totally do this...at a Glance:

- Great for all skill levels 
- Private Launch into a calm creek. (Double bonus)
- See a side of First Landing State Park not a lot of people get to experience. It's a more LOCAL vibe.
- You have a knowledgeable guide carrying water and snacks. Totally sweet.

-Pontoon ride included, lesson included, rental gear included.

We will start with a brief lesson from your guide on paddle technique, then paddle from our private launch into Long Creek. From there our guide will lead you along the waterway as a gentle current helps push you along. This creek features spectacular views of the interior SouthWestern shoreline of First Landing State Park, a side of the park many people do not get to experience. There are several spots along the way to take a water break (water provided) and step into some shade to relax. At the end of the creek we will load onto the Tula Pontoon Boat and enjoy a leisurely ride back to the launch. 

We made this tour because it is our favorite thing to do on our days off, and believe it is one of the best ways to spend your day in Virginia Beach, far away from the hustle and bustle of the busier sides of town.

(About Long Creek: This creek is tidal, ebbing and flowing approximately every 6 hours. The creek runs between Broad Bay and Lynnhaven River. It is a fairly shallow, windy creek. This is great for paddlers because most boat traffic takes a different route to avoid this creek and its long no-wake zone and the shifting shoals. Even on weekends we find Long Creek is the most friendly of paddling trails in the area. This paddle is great for all skill levels and wildlife enthusiasts. There are several aquaculture areas and restoration projects to check out along the way. Between John Smith and Blackbeard, there is a lot history along these waters. Paddle and PFD Included. These trips leave from Tula Adventure Sports Launch in the Marina at Marina Shores. )
