I love Dan! His instruction was perfect and he and the other two guides really helped make this a very enjoyable trip for my grandson and I. I have already recommended the trip to several people at work and will continue to do so. We really had a great day. The dolphins cooperated and we saw about three pods of... More

From the reservation process to the experience, everything was top notch. I had never kayaked before, but with Dan's instructions, everyone in my tour did excellent. It was a windy day so we got quite a workout; yes! We saw many schools of dolphins! It was a great experience!! Thank you KNT!!

Our kids had a great time on this adventure. The kayak tour exceeded their expectations. They saw up to 30 dolphins. One word of constructive feedback is to make sure people know where to stop when paddling out.

Kayaking in the ocean was not only the best way to see a LOT of dolphins, but the best bargain too. The trip really is suitable for all skill levels as the guides are extremely helpful and knowledgable. Thane and Justin were awesome. All of the tips on the website are good. I would do it again although I might... More

We showed up early in the morning and met with out tour guide Steve and a nice group of fellow adventurers. Once we learned the basics we were off to see the sights. He said we paddled about 5 miles altogether but it was worth it

Suitable for all skill levels from novice to expert. Fun knowledgable guides, instruction and good equipment. The tides were unusually low so we could not navigate the usual trip through the marsh to the lake so a little disappointing, but otherwise it was a glorious way to spend a morning in Virgina Beach. I'd do it again in a heartbeat,... More
