Kayak Virginia Beach

Kayaking Resources for Southeast Virginia




Welcome to Kayak Virginia Beach.

KayakVB is a running account of my kayak trips in Southeast Virginia,The Eastern Shore and Northeast North Carolina. I'm providing a source of flat-water kayaking resources for the average paddler, based on my experiences in these waters. My trip reports consist of launch sites, GPS Tracks and maps, and photos linked to the GPS map location. I do try to get on the water at least once a week so, year around. I try to go to a different location every time, but I do tend to spend a lot of time on or around Back Bay Virginia.

One of the great things about living in Southern Virginia Beach, is that there are plenty of places to put a boat in the water within minutes. Once in the water you are short distance away from the peace and quiet afforded by the various preserves an and sanctuaries in the area. Back Bay, North Landing River, Northwest River, and the Great Dismal Swamp all either run through, adjoin, or are in or on one of the many Federal, State, or Private wildlife sanctuaries in the area.

If you have any comments, input or suggestions feel free to let me know.

Launch Section Re-Write

I was doing a re-write of the launch site section, and it was too much code to rewrite considering my schedule, for more information head over to kayakvb.net and let me know your thoughts. Or just go to kayakplaces.com to see what the future holds.

I have not had the time to re-write what I have wanted to re-write, and I have found that my old image code is not playing nice with newer larger images, they really look like doo doo...
So going forward I have opted to use a sub-site trips.kayakvb.com, to deal with the trips, it is canned software, and allowed me to provide a better experience for the reader...
I will continue to build and maintain the launch site database here for the time being, but I also have ideas to improve that as well...

This whole re-write thing has been taking much longer then I originally planned, and things have changed so much I am thinking of dumping what I have done and starting over. I have made some updates on the launch site pages, I dumped the yahoo maps for google maps, and added a link to get google directions for the launch sites. I added another 7 launches yesterday, and looking at it I have really expanded the scope of the site, so I am thinking of restructuring the whole thing and putting more effort into my other site kayakva.com. kayakvb will not go away, just re-focused to VB or hamptonroads
