Check out Back Bay Getaways for renting kayaks, surfboards, SUP boards, or mountain bikes! 

Back Bay Getaways offers options to sign up for a guided tour with their experienced staff or to go on an adventure yourself. There is no prior experience necessary whether biking or kayaking, and their knowledgable staff is there to guide you and answer any questions you may have. Safety is extremely important, so you will be provided with any equipment needed and briefed on the type of tour you have chosen. You have options to paddle the beautiful waters of Back Bay, cycle down remote trails, or even camp on an isolated beach!  

Rentals for solo adventures are available for 2 hours, 4 hours, or 8 hours, with prices ranging from $25-$45. They have several kayak tour options and SUP tours, as well as the option for surf lessons. Their sunset kayak tour sounds absolutely gorgeous as you paddle out and watch the sun set over the pristine waters! You must make advance reservations for all tours and lessons, but are welcome to drop in to rent on your own. Note that there is also a minimum of 4 people for all tours.

The rental shop is located in Sandbridge, where there are over 12,000 acres of protected coastal and marsh habitat, so this is the perfect place to explore on a nice day. 

Bay Bay is not only dedicated to ensuring that you have a good time, but also to educating guests about preserving the local habitats, safety in the water, and enjoying all that there is to offer in the area!

Getting outside and exploring the world is something Veronica is extremely passionate about! She is thrilled to be a part of the Happyly Team and helping to bring those adventures to other families. As an educator, Veronica has seen the importance of allowing children the opportunity to interact daily with outdoor spaces. It helps to foster their independence, creativity, and problem solving skills. Being a member of a military family, Veronica has had the privilege of discovering adventures in many different states. Having most recently moved from Hawaii to Virginia Beach, she and her family are constantly searching for the best hikes, parks, farms, and local restaurants! When she is not hunting for their next fun adventure, you can find Veronica teaching or taking a yoga class, relaxing at the beach, or curled up with a good cup of coffee and a great book!
