Lynnhaven- Heavy Traffic

Lynnhaven- Heavy Traffic, originally uploaded by jmharper.

A Note of Caution when you paddle at Lynnhaven Inlet. The tides can be very strong, as all of the water in 4 or 5 rivers goes in and out through one narrow inlet. The powerboat traffic can also be VERY heavy, as this is a choke point for boats heading in and out of the Chesapeake Bay.

Paddling out of the city boat ramp area is OK for novice paddlers, but the trip across the inlet and down the channel towards Broad Bay Island can be kind of hazardous. Be careful!
