We were able to rent on the day we arrived! We got to break in their brand new paddle boards. Great equipment for a fantastic price! Matt and his family were wonderful and very helpful! I would definitely rent from Chesapean Outdoors again! We would have loved to check out their tours if we were in VA longer.

the weather was great and one a friend and myself had two teenage girls to entertain. Chesapean Outdoors was perfect! We had so much fun and Matt was more than accommodating. He made the girls feel confident comfortable on the paddle boards and explained everything really well. The afternoon was great-couldn't have picked a better day or activity. Thanks!

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
