Getaway to Learn Something New

The Tides offers experiences unique to its location in a small, river town on the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail, near the Rappahannock River oyster farms. The resort is a place where one can revel in the simplicity of nature; it is a place to have fun while learning how to slice through the waters of the Chesapeake Bay on a sailboat or hit an overhead smash on the tennis court.  

Discover ongoing, experiential activities in sports, culinary arts and wellness with our friendly staff of experts. They've taught kids how to ride a bike and catch their first fish, instructed adults in the art of wine tasting, and introduced entire families to the thrilling sport of sailing.

 A Tides holiday can include these learning experiences:

  • Learn to sail at our on-site sailing school
  • Learn to paddleboard on the gentle waters of Carter's Creek
  • Learn to golf on The Golden Eagle, one of Virginia's best courses
  • Learn to play tennis under the tutelage of our tennis pro

Or enjoy experiencing what history has to teach us first hand by exploring the local area:
