Burnham Guides Paddling Adventures
Fri, Apr 12, 2019 - Mon, Oct 14, 2019
Onancock Creek, off the Chesapeake Bay, is one of the best hidden secrets for Standup Paddleboarding (SUP) for all abilities! Beginners will find the sheltered waters the perfect place to learn, while those more experienced can paddle out to the Chesapeake Bay to play in the waves. Children and dogs welcome!
Lean to SUP: Launch easily from the floating dock behind our shop right on Onancock Wharf. We’ll teach you how! Go on a one or two hour guided trip on the sheltered, calm tributaries that pass through the 1680 Colonial port town. With some experience, you can rent a board to go out on your own.
For more challenge, launch your SUP or rent one of ours to head out 4-mile-long scenic Onancock Creek to the Chesapeake Bay. Conditions and experience permitting you can land on a pristine beach and walk along Parker’s Marsh Wildlife Preserve for a 10-mile round trip.
Kayak rentals and tours are also available at this location.
Step off your SUP and onto Mallards outdoor dining deck adjacent to our shop for some local seafood. It' the perfect place for lunch, dinner or cocktails after your paddle. Visit onancock.com for lodging and make a weekend of it! Other activities from Onancock wharf include renting a bike, Onancock Sailing Adventures and the Tangier Island Ferry.
- SUP rentals start at just $20; $30 for a beginner lesson.
