In 1996 a Virginia Beach native named Matt Redford started a small kayak eco-tour company called Chesapean Kayak Tours hoping to share the “backyard of his youth” with others. At the time there were few companies offering kayak tours and the ones that did focused on flatwater trips in the marshes. Chesapean was the first to offer daily kayak trips in the ocean to see bottlenose dolphins and to this day these tours remain our specialty.  Chesapean Outdoors now offers guided kayak and stand up paddleboard tours, private and small group surf lessons, bike tours, rentals and corporate/group outings and beach day adventures.

Over the last 19 years not only has Chesapean Kayak Tours evolved into Chesapean Outdoors but it has grown into a family business, with every member playing a vital role in our companies continued success.  At Chesapean Outdoors we make sure that all of our staff members provide you with excellent customer service while providing you with information and history on the local area and ecosystems.  We also REQUIRE all of our tour guides to have years of experience in the water, have a broad understanding of currents, winds and tides and most importantly have a great respect for the ocean and its surrounding waterways.
