Canoe/Kayak Powhatan Creek

  • 13 Aug 2022
  • 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM
  • Powhatan Creek out to the tip of Jamestown Island
Where:  Canoe/Kayak Powhatan Creek James City Co Virginia
When:  Saturday August 13, 2022
Time: 9:00AM - 2:00(?)
Distance/difficulty:  6 mile paddle moderate

Description: This will be a fun paddle on Powhatan Creek out to the tip of Jamestown Island and back.  Fun, scenic and lots of history.  It is flat water suitable for kayak or canoe.  Even at low tide the channel is navigable.  There is a moderate current as the tide comes in and goes out but should be no problem for us.
  • We will put in at the Powhatan Creek Park and Blue Way canoe/kayak launch on route 31 operated by James City County (this is the road to the James town ferry).  If coming from Tidewater take Exit 242 onto 199 towards Jamestown.  Take a left onto 31 (follow the signs for the ferry).  Once you past James River Pie Co. on the left look for the entrance to the park on the right.
  • There is no cost for putting in or parking.  I will be there with my yellow kayak and charcoal gray Ford F150 truck.
  • You must have a kayak or canoe as there is no rentals.
  • You must be able to swim and wear a PFD the entire time we are on the water.
  • This is weather dependent, so if high winds or thunderstorms are predicted check with Mark Wenger and he will make the final call at 7:00AM that morning.  
  • Dress for being on the water, remember sunscreen, water and maybe some snacks.  Bug spray might be a good idea just in case.
  • When we finish, we will head to Billsburg Brewery which we passed while kayaking and celebrate the day.
  • To sign up (or if you have any questions) call, text or email Mark Wenger at swfl1951@gmail.com / 757-645-6700.
