30. Paddling Virginia’s Coastal Region with Laura Scharle, Virginia Water Trails

“Every time I go paddling, I am completely mesmerized. To be on the beach or in the marsh and not hear or see a single sign of human life, it’s just this wow factor that I can’t get over.” Laura Scharle, Virginia Water Trails

Where can you experience blue crabs foraging in saltwater marshes, turtles basking in quiet creeks, long-legged wading birds stalking in tall grasses, an historic lighthouse on an isolated island, dolphins leaping between the waves, or watermen bringing in the catch of the day? All of this can be found on Virginia Water Trails. Laura Scharle, a certified ecotour guide, describes the paddling opportunities in Virginia’s coastal region. Laura recommends her favorite trails for both beginners and advanced paddlers, as well as how to plan your next getaway complete with lodging, shopping, dining and local festivals. Let’s Go!
