We’re always proud to be the media’s source for adventure! Through our great relationship with the Virginia Beach Convention & Visitor’s Bureau and BCF Agency, we’ve hosted hundreds of travel and adventure journalists from around the globe, showcasing our slice of Virginia Beach on the banks of Back Bay. Our latest media visit came to us from Rocky Mount, N.C.’s WHIG-TV, which selected Surf & Adventure Co./Ocean Rentals Ltd.’s Blue Pete’s Sunset Dinner Kayak Tour as the subject of an upcoming episode of “On The Map,” a show dedicated to travel destinations within a short drive from the station’s viewing area.

On-air talent Brittany Smith and cameraman Robby Morris interviewed shop owner Rob Lindauer to gain insight to our company’s wide array of adventure opportunities from surf lessons to SUP, bike and kayak tours. Our paddle to Blue Pete’s was completed with an ideal, following breeze from the east-northeast, comfortable temperatures and smooth waters for the entire trip. The two-hour paddle is perfect for building up a hunger and thirst for the restaurant’s delicious food and drink offerings!

Enjoy the photos and stay tuned for the “On The Map” video once it airs. To book your own Blue Pete’s Sunset Dinner Kayak Tour, click here!

Covering more than a quarter of Virginia Beach’s total area, Back Bay is the perfect reflecting pool to amplify most sunsets into some breathtaking moments. These recent images of the Stokes family captured by Larry Peak demonstrates the light show Mother Nature continually runs in the sky and on the water in Back Bay.
