Stand Up Paddleboard Sightseeing Tour
"Paddle along the pristine shoreline of First Landing State Park on Broad Bay and Long Creek a great way to see all the wildlife around the park and on the waterways. This paddle is great for first timers and wildlife enthusiasts alike. You will be surrounded by beauty while paddling along friendly waters and getting a little push from the tide. This tour starts with a land lesson then you set out on your tour with your friendly knowledgeable guide. At the half-way point of the tour we will stop to grab a snack at your own expense and stretch our legs along the Park’s beautiful beaches."""
