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.

Called Kayak Nature Tours for the ocean kayak Dolphin tour. We were asked if we ever kayaked before and we hadn't. That tells me this organization knows what they're talking about. They suggested we do the First Landing State Park salt marsh and maritime forest trip. Great instructors, friendly, and knowledgeable. Quick lesson and we were in the water. Fantastic... More

I took a flatwater trip for my birthday and it was great. The staff really makes this company stand out among all others. We didn't see much wildlife on this trip, but it was beautiful and serene. Our guide, Dan, was a wealth of knowledge about the bay and all things estuary. I'm a local, so I'll be going back... More

We decided to do this as a last minute since parasailing was kindof pricey. So glad we did. There were dolphins all around us. The guide were wonderful. Let us do our own thing, answered questions, took multiple pictures. We had ages 13-55 in our group and we all loved it!

We had 6 people with 2 teenagers and it was awesome. We saw at least 40 or so dolphins some as close as 2 feet from us. Tour guides were amazing and made it that much better.

If you really want to have wonderful kayak experience, think no further go with these people. This is our first time. They made us feel safe and comfortable . My wife and I really had a great time . This kayaking trip is one of our highlight in our virginia beach vacation. Its totally worth it.

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
