Travel with the Authors ~ Florida Keys Kayaking ~ Hiking Virginia ~ Paddling the Eastern Shore

Call us crazy, but we think work should be fun! So we combined the things we love doing and 15 years later we have eight books and hundreds of travel articles, many posted on the right (that's the BurnhamInk part).

Burnham Guides LLC, combines being guidebook authors and kayak guides. In winter, we lead kayak trips in the Florida Keys. Summers we run a kayak shop on Virginia's Eastern Shore.

In between we may be hiking the Blue Ridge or cruising the world, but you can always find us on Facebook! Check it out and say hello!

Visit for our "Paddle with the Authors" Florida Keys kayak trips offered January through March. Ranging from 2 to 10 days, we'll outfit you, feed you, and guide you from the pages of our award-winning Florida Keys Paddling Atlas. Once a year we do the "KL2KW" 100-mile trip from Key Largo to Key West, the trip of a lifetime.
Follow on our Blog ~ Watch Florida Keys Paddling Video is our online travel guide to loads of content on terrific places to Pack, Paddle, Play and Stay in the Old Dominion. We've visited them all--and written the books to prove it.
