Paddling Wormeley Creek, VA

Pretty creek off of the York River near Yorktown has the added attraction of the Coast Guard Training school. Beware the jelly fish! Low tide can make navigating the shoal at the entrance to the York difficult. The channel is deceptive, but marked – power boats must zig zag to the edge of the creek, while paddlers can head straight up the middle. The north end of the creek has several Osprey nests.
