We live in VA Beach and it was nice to do a kayak tour in our own "back yard." Nice to see First Landing State Park from the water vs on the trails. They do ask that people bring waters. Having two young children with us, and they get hungry at any time... I also brought snacks. I just made... More

An amazing time! We really enjoyed our time with the others on the tour, and the guide was exceptional. We were literly in the middle of dozens of dolphins for over an hour! We will be back, and we have already began recommending this to our friends

What a wonderful adventure. The seas were quite rough on our day out, but the guides were very helpful and made our experience a lot of fun. We actually enjoyed the high waves though it was harder to spot the dolphins because of the size of the cresting waves. The guides took the time to take videos and photos of... More

We went kayaking from First Landing State Park while we were staying in Sandbridge. It was one of our favorite activities we did. None of us had kayaked before (we were in three kayaks: Dad and 6 y/o, mom and 9 y/o and 12 y/o and 14 y/o together). The instruction was excellent and it was great they had 4... More

This was a lot of fun! The guides were informative & pleasant and we did see some dolphins! It was a breezy day so paddling was hard to go anywhere, but we had a blast! The guides also took pictures of everyone out on the kayaks which they will post for free. This is a good way to spend a... 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.
