Outdoor and Adventure Tours IN VIRGINIA BEACH

Make your vacation a green one with earth friendly adventures in Virginia Beach!

Green living may be the current “fashion,” but we’ve been offering ecotourism in Virginia Beach for  decades. Ocean Kayak and let the dolphins swim right up so they can get a good look at you. Visit the Back Bay Wildlife Refuge and see sea turtle nesting grounds, rare wild bird colonies and miles of untamed beach where human impact is kept to a minimum. That is what ecotourism is all about, enjoying activities in natural habitats like the oceans and forests without disturbing them.

Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and the adjacent False Cape State Park are perfect examples. False Cape has no vehicular access. Visitors trek in along the beach or via a rustic trail. It’s being a park of the great outdoors.

Kayaking

We know you’re eager to get out on the water, so make kayaking your first adventure toward eco-exploration. There are plenty of places to rent a kayak, canoe or paddleboat, and there’s nothing as serene as paddling out a ways and getting in touch the beauty of Virginia Beach’s nature. If you want adventure, paddle out into the ocean and hang out with the fish dolphins or surfers.

Stand Up Paddleboarding

Take to a new form of transportation by learning the popular pastime of stand up paddleboarding. The tranquil waters near the Chesapeake Bay are ideal for a relaxing tour that allows you to reconnect with nature as well as view some of the beautiful waterfront homes throughout the area. When you are ready to check out the Atlantic Ocean on a more advanced paddling experience Sign up for lessons with Beach Eco Tours, and a professional paddleboarder will show you how to maneuver around while also pointing out the natural wildlife. They also offer evening paddles, dolphin watching tours and so much more.

Hiking

Head to Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge, 9,250 acres situated on and around a thin strip of coastline, and enjoy a hike on their Bay Trail. While you’re there, take part in their educational program, motivating people to learn maintenance of healthy ecosystems as well as conservation and enhancement of our fish and wildlife resources. Help to preserve Virginia Beach’s natural beauty by making your vacation a green one.
