Author: Andrea J. Nolan
A richly detailed guide to 30 of the best sea kayaking day trips spanning the coastline of the Old Dominion.
A veteran paddling guide offers her favorite routes and insights gleaned from years of experience. Spanning the length of the coastal plain, this guide includes the Chesapeake's tidal tributaries, the eastern shore, and the blackwater cypress swamps of the south. Each route description goes beyond access points and paddling notes to include estuarine ecology, social and natural history, and sidebars covering a variety of topics from gear to wildlife sightings to local highlights. Beginning and experienced kayakers will appreciate the depth of information, including geographical, wind, weather, tidal, and safety issues. A brief introduction to other area trips effectively doubles the number of trip locations to pursue. 30 black-and-white photographs

Sea Kayaking Virginia: A Paddler's Guide to Day Trips from Georgetown to Chincoteague by Andrea Nolan
Savario and Nolan are professional guides who have written two delightful guidebooks for kayak day trips in the area of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. The books document trips the authors have made a regular part of their itinerary and are written in a narrative style that is not only informative but makes for a great armchair tour for those nasty winter days as well. I found both these books at my local library and liked them so well they had to become part of my personal library. Enjoy!
30 great paddles in Eastern Virginia are thoroughly described. If you paddle in this part of the world this is a must have reference. The author's detailed accounts give a clear understanding of what to expect along the way. Highly recommended.
This book is fantastic! It was helpful when planning routes, deciding where to put in -- Nolan knows all the best spots -- but I also found myself reading descriptions of trips I didn't plan on taking, because the author really knows how to tell a story. It's hard to find a guide book that's savvy with relevant information but well written too. Probably the best I've ever found.
