Unavailable as of 2021 due to change in property ownership. We’re working to find an alternative means of paddling the Powhatan. Please call for options in Gloucester and Mathews Counties. +1 (804) 695-4660
Launch from a private marina on Powhatan Creek only about one mile upstream from the Jamestown Settlement. Depending upon the tide and weather we will either paddle upstream in this freshwater tidal creek or downstream towards (but not into) the mighty James River. Occasionally special tours that incorporate the Jamestown Marina and Billsburg Brewery will be offered.
This eco tour is excellent for beginners as it is does not leave us in large exposed bodies of water and is sheltered from coastal winds. The tour typically last for about 2.5 hours and the cost is only $60 for adults and $35 for children.
