We are the most exciting "thing to do in Virginia Beach." Our 2.5 hour guided Kayak Dolphin Tours start in late May and continue through October, where you can experience wild dolphins up close and personal. This is our most exciting kayak adventure launching through the surf into the Atlantic Ocean. We have been operating for 16 years as a professional guided kayak tour company in the Hampton Roads area. We offer fun, exciting, and memorable kayak tours throughout Southeast Virginia. We have built an excellent reputation among local guests and visitors alike. Our other 2.5 hour tours take place on calm inland protected waters to The Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge, First Landing State Park, North West River, or our sunset tour in the beautiful Norfolk Botanical Gardens. We have 2.5 hour trips to other locations and all day trips to the Deserted Beaches of the Eastern Shore and Lake Drummond in the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge.

Let's just start the review by saying the weather was perfect on August 15. The tour guides were helpful and informative and threw in some humor that made the trip even more interesting. Lots of local history and natural history was provided. 2.5 hrs was just enough to experience the wildlife and be on the water...but left you with a... More

My cousin and I are both 110 pounds, some what too light to go kayak. Then, we chose flat water tour at first landing location to avoid problems, even though the probability of seeing dolphins is pretty low during a flat water tour. However, we saw dolphins!!! It is so rare to see dolphins at bay area. There were four... More

I was a little nervous about it at first since I have only been in a kayak once. However, I was in a double kayak with a friend that has done it numerous times. It was not as hard to get out or come in as the website seems to make it. I believe it is totally worth the money!

Our family vacation to Virginia Beach was greatly enhanced by the fun our group of ten had kayaking. Great way to celebrate my daughter's 19th birthday. Highly recommend.

We had a fantastic morning with our guides Mike and Tim. We were surrounded by pods of dolphins over and over again for the two hours we were out on the water. Many times they passed by our kayaks within a paddle length or two, occasionally passing right under us and surfacing on the other side. Plenty of baby dolphins... More

If you are looking for a serene, lovely water adventure in nature, this is your tour. Our guide, Dan, was knowledgeable and fun. The rowing was easy (probably because my partner did all the heavy lifting). I'm going to take the Dolphin tour next. The seats were very comfortable and the kayak was very maneuverable. Do this tour. Good exercise... More

I can't even begin to stress how much fun this experience is! And the staff definitely makes it a great! Our family took the ocean adventure and it was really incredible. We saw dozens of dolphins!

Wonderful review and we are very appreciative you took time out of your busy day to give it to us. The Dolphins are amazing and taking a swim day on a warm isn't bad either.

Great first time experience of kayaking on the ocean beyond the obvious beautiful weather, the dolphins but what made this trip was Dan our guide. He made it easy for all us first timers and was very knowledgeable and personal. Thanks Dan for memorable day even if I was the one that provided the laughs. .
