Welcome to Moore To See Photo Expeditions..
..where we will help you discover the Virginia Beach most people never see!
|Campbell's LandingJanuary 2017 - Back Bay froze over.|
We offer private tours of Back Bay, Knott's Island Bay, and the North Landing River and tributaries (Pocaty R., BlackWater R., Milldam Cr., Snake Cr., Walnut Cr.).
We also offer special tours to a local rookery just over the border in North Carolina accessible only by boat. The rookery has large populations of Great Egrets, Little Blue Herons, Snowy Egrets, Cattle Egrets, Tricolored Egrets, and two Osprey nests.
Private tours of Back Bay, Knott's Island Bay, the rookery and the North Landing River and tributaries run for 3 hours, although they may run a bit longer depending on interest.

Meeting times and locations
Meeting locations will vary depending on which body of water we tour, but all meeting locations are in Virginia Beach off Princess Anne Rd. except for the False Cape full day tours and overnight stays.
North Landing River and tributaries - Old Pungo Ferry Rd. boat ramp.
Back Bay - Mill Landing ramp on Mill Landing Rd.
Knott's Island/Currituck Sound - Back Bay Landing on Back Bay Landing Rd. or Old Pungo Ferry Rd. boat ramp.
Meeting times will be agreed upon prior to the tour. I am very flexible as to what time we begin. Photographers tend to want to be on the water prior to sunrise and during sunset. I can meet as early or late as you indicate.
False Cape Day and Overnight trips - meet at the Little Island Park parking lot on Sandbridge Rd. (park charges a fee during the summer months).
