CAUTION: Lynnhaven River and its tributaries can be as deep as 3 to 4 feet or as shallow as 3 to 4 inches. Watch the tides and the prevailing wind, as both can dramatically affect the depth of the water.
A day trip through the saltwater marshes of the Lynnhaven River can be extremely relaxing. You can expect to see Osprey, Egrets, Herons and even Bald Eagles. Paddling deeper into the Lynnhaven River will provide the paddler with a view of some of the most expensive residential real estate in Virginia Beach.
Jet ski's and larger boat traffic can be a nuisance at the ramp and in the channel, but the water is shallow outside the channel and provides an excellent safe haven for paddlers.
