Join us on our most popular half-day tour with something for everyone! Back Bay is the largest watershed in Virginia Beach. Most of the marsh and swamp land surrounding the Back Bay is preserved and protected as part of the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. These lush marshes, secluded swamps and surrounding areas are home to a variety of song birds, bald eagles, osprey, hawks, egrets, herons and river otter. The tour of this local treasure begins on the western bank of Back Bay, winds through a maze of tranquil marshes, sheltered black water tributaries of Back Bay and a bald cypress swamp. One of our most popular and rewarding trips; the paddling is relaxing and easy.
