Embark on a Paddle Tour in Virginia Beach With Go Kayak!

When you’re a resident of our apartments in Virginia Beach, you’re in close proximity to the water. Additionally, there are plenty of ocean-going activities to satisfy the adventurous soul. If you're looking for something slightly more challenging than a day at the beach, try Virginia Beach's very own Go Kayak! paddle tours. 

A New Way to Explore Virginia Waterways

Go Kayak! offers residents an alternative method for seeing the area's scenic waterways. Tours depart from First Landing State Park and launch into Broad Bay's beautiful stretch of water. The kayak launch area is located near 64th street, just minutes away from our apartments near Tidewater Community College. 

From there, you'll have a quick, fifteen-minute lesson on the basics of paddling a lightweight kayak. After that, you’ll embark on a two-hour guided tour of the Broad Bay area.

Paddling With a Porpoise

The company's tagline promises direct interaction with marine life. Given the rich ecosystem in the waterways around Virginia Beach, chances are high that you'll catch a glimpse of social animals like dolphins and porpoises. In fact, Go Kayak! partners with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to promote dolphin conservation efforts around the region. 

As you paddle through the park's gorgeous and historic maritime forest, you'll see an assortment of other creatures besides dolphins. Ospreys, bald eagles, and other aquatic life are all common sights along the tour. In addition, this hidden gem is just minutes from our apartments near Tidewater Community College. 

Book Your Kayak Tour

Go Kayak! tours offer three different time slots, seven days a week. Each tour comes with the benefit of its own experienced guide. Although a minimum two person group is needed for departure, the rates are extremely affordable at $59 a person, especially given the value included with the tour. 

There are so many ocean-based activities for the residents of apartments in Virginia Beach to enjoy. When you want to find out more about the great amenities at The Apartments at Spence Crossing, contact us. Our leasing staff would love to schedule a tour.
