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.

We had a great time kayaking with this tour. We were had very little experience and they gave us good "training" before and during the trip. the tour guides made it fun and had a lot of patience with us. I would recommend this tour group to everyone.

My husband, my two sons and myself had a wonderful time. The guides are very helpful and you do not have to have any experience in a kayak... More

Having two young children with us, and they get hungry at any time... I also brought snacks. I just made... More

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
