Paddle on, friends. And when you do, if you happen to look up and take some photos, be sure to tag the Virginia Water Trails on Facebook with #VirginiaWaterTrails #RuralCoastalVA and #RCVA.

The Rural Coastal Virginia Alliance exists to present unique ecotourism activities and destinations for locals and visitors to easily enjoy. The alliance partners embrace sustainable, vibrant, healthy ecosystems, and a resilient, diversified, nature-based economy. We invite you to enjoy our scenic and historic coastal waterways! Please do so safely and hire a Virginia Certified Ecotour Guide to make the most of your experience. Learn more about guides by watching this video:
