Carova Beach on the Atlantic Ocean
This is a "must do" trip. Paddle from the island to the
ocean. View wild horses living in a community of folks who have
no roads leading to their town. Boat or four wheel drive is how
you approach this hideaway. This round trip is 5.5 miles across open water.
Mackay Island Refuge
We call this one the "big loop".
It's a couple of miles of paddling through the canals at the wildlife
|These trips are not on the
island but are favorites of ours.
Blackwater Creek in Virginia Beach
The starting point for this easy paddle is located across the
Intracoastal Waterway from Rt. 615 on your way to Knotts Island.
It's only an 11 mile drive from the island so we call it one of
The Barge Graveyard on the ICW
This is a interesting little paddle into the marsh that runs
along the Intracoastal Waterway. It take you to a site where old wooden
barges have been left to spend the rest of time settled in the mud.
