Canoeing & Kayaking

There are plenty of places in Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Jamestown that get you out of the city and into nature. The James City County Marina is the perfect (short!) distance from a range of other outdoor locations: rent a bike to ride down the York River, or get into a canoe and paddle through the historic Powhatan Creek. You can even rent a schooner and sail the same waterways as Captain John Smith did back in colonial times! All choices offer a relaxing day away from the city, and immerse you in nature and a quiet ride teeming with history.
