We were visiting Cape Charles for a long weekend away and our hotel recommended the Chatam Winery tour. We couldn't have picked a better trip. We had perfect weather and our guide Dave was friendly, engaging, and extremely knowledgeable. It started with a quick tutorial in kayaking then we hit the water. On the way Dave pointed out oyster beds,... More

We signed up for the whole day kayaking tour. Our guide Will called us in advance to discuss the type of trip and our kayaking experience and to give us a choice of lunch which was included. On the trip Will proved to be an experienced and thoughtful guide with a deep love and knowledge of the area. We learned... More

The Web site says the business is open Thursday thru Sunday, but kayak rentals are available daily. After a couple of hours we finally heard back from someone who said we could not rent several kayaks for the... More

On our way down from Jersey to the outer Banks we stopped in Onancock where 11 of us went on a great kayak tour. Will was our tour guide and was super patient being most of us were first time kayakers. Our 7 kids (ages 8-15) had a great time as well!

My 3 grandchildren (6, 8, &10) have enjoyed paddle boarding and kayaking with SouthEast Expeditions for the last 2 summers. I sat on the deck with a beverage at Mallards and enjoyed watching. They took a break to have lunch with me at Mallards (2 steps away) then went out again!

We toured Chatham Vineyards via kayak. About a 90 minute paddle to the vineyards and half that to get back. Stayed in quiet waters, with many birds to be seen from the water, as we hugged the shore and steered around the crab pots. Our guide was Margaret and found her very cheerful, competent and helpful.
