Words & photos by John Streit. There’s good reason for the Virginia Beach Convention & Visitors Bureau’s continual showcasing of our signature Back Bay Eco Kayak Tours: It’s one of the most beautiful and affordable gateways into becoming submersed in our region’s natural majesty! This time around, two crews of travel writers and public relations professionals from the Society of American Travel Writers, who recently convened in Virginia Beach. By the grace of Mother Nature, the writers were treated to a pair of ideal midday tours through our Back Bay canal/tributary system that backs up to our property’s boat dock and runs though Sandbridge Marsh to the open waters of the northern portion of Back Bay. The wildlife came out to greet our guests, as we had fly-overs from our nesting bald eagles, osprey and even a rare encounter with a mink as we paddled through the waterway. Enjoy these glimpses into the magical word of Surf & Adventure/Ocean Rentals’ Back Bay. To book your own adventure, call us at (757) 721-6210 or click here!
