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.

It was a great kayaking experience. Lots of fun. Very helpful and kind guides. We did over turn coming back in but it was part of the fun. We were able to see the dolphins just briefly. The guides took pictures and videos and sent the links to us for free. highly recommend them

Staff was friendly, knowledgeable and funny, made the tour so much more fun. We saw plenty of dolphins and fish schools. I had a blast! They also take a lot of photos and videos for you for free of charge. Now, that's a service!

We took the dolphin watching tour on Saturday morning. Dan and Nathan were our guides and both did an exceptional job. Dan talked us through the proper procedures, etc to be successful out on the kayaks. We saw many pods of dolphins and enjoyed conversation with Dan and Nathan. Easy, free parking on 89th street and a very short walk... More

Our family had a great time kayaking at First Landing State Park. Kayak Nature Tours made the trip enjoyable and informative. Our kids (8 and 5) loved swimming in the lake off of the kayaks.

Loved the Dolphin Trip run by Kayak Nature Tours. Our two guides were excellent. They trained us on the key things we neeccded to know and launched us into the ocean for our awesome adventure. It's an extra plus that they took still and video photos throughout the trip. We saw dozens of dolphins at fairly close range, including a... More

Kayaking in the ocean with a 10 and 15 year old had me a little nervous, but the instructions at the beginning and the knowledge of the staff was excellent. All kayaks made it thru the surf just fine, and was clearly the highlight of our vacation. We saw many dolphins and even had 2 jump out of the water... More

As recent transplants from San Diego to Virginia Beach we were looking for an opportunity to get introduced to kayaking in the area, particularly Broad Bay and the inner estuary channels, and were completely captivated by the exceptional guided tour provided by Dan and Wes. They were consummate professionals, highly knowledgeable of the bay and biota, and great fun to... More

What a wonderful experience. The staff is outstanding, friendly, informative. Great work out, lots of laughs (you must bring them as well) and follow-up pictures is an added bonus. Spending couple hours in the water, sun, great company, couldn't have asked for a better time. Highly recommend.
