The "Mommies" dropped the kids at camp and spent the morning with John learning Stand Up Paddleboarding at First Landing State Park. What a blast we had!! The entire experience from introductions to good-bye and everything in between was fantastic. John did a great job of teaching, guiding and engaging with us. He explained what could be difficult (and it... More

My friends and I signed up for paddle boarding the morning before using the $30 per person deal we saw on their Facebook page. That morning, we arrived at the beach and learned about the boards and the basics of stand-up paddle boarding. Our guides, Matt, TJ, and John, were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They were very patient and helpful... More

We were officially the first tour of the season in April. We booked a kayak tour at First Landing State Park. Matt was very resourceful and brought us snacks , binoculars, and a print out of the different animals we might encounter. The water was absolutely clear and beautiful. It was really neat to see the oyster traps and learn... More

My husband and I were fortunate enough to have a personal kayaking tour guided by Matt (the owner). His passion for the water and nature was evident. We both learned so much and had a memorable trip. Both professional and personable, we could not have asked for more in a guide. I would highly recommend this company.

We undertook a half day tour through the backwaters with my son 15 and daughter 13. We had a great day right at the beginning of the season. It gave us an Insight in to the Virginia beach area that we would never have experienced without taking to the water. Thoroughly recommended.

This summer I experienced three of Chesepean’s many kayak tours, The bay, dolphin tour, and the sunset tour. The guides (Trey for the dolphin tour, and Matt for the others) did an amazing job of sharing their knowledge of the history of the area as well as the environment and wildlife. They knew what they were talking about, shared stories... More

We did stand up paddle boarding -- Our instructor was super friendly, professional, and quite thorough during the hike portion! I would most certainly recommend this place --- And I am feeling terrible that I can't remember the instructor's name - ugh! The price was competitive too!

This was the type of trip you'll always remember. We took the 12:00 tour from 79th St. We were concerned about leaving at noon since dolphins are usually seen in the morning and early evening, but as soon as we walked onto the beach we saw dolphins in the distance. About fifteen to 20 minutes into the tour until the... More

Lovely morning kayaking at First Landing State Park. Beautiful morning and knowledgeable local guide. We saw dolphins which we were told was pretty rare in the park waterways.
