Virtually everything about our trip was perfect: the weather, the dolphins, the waves, all of it. Such a fun and exciting, yet relaxing and low-key sport! Take them seriously when they say you will wipe out though, we did at least three times, and it was scary! The only improvement I would have made was to have a little more... More

The team at Kayak Nature Tours gave my fiancee and I such a great experience on the water that we will always remember the trip. We decided that it was about time to try kayaking. While on a week long trip to VA Beach I noticed that there were Dolphin watching tours offered in the area. Having never been on... More

Kayak nature tours was one of the highlights of our trip to VA beach! The instructor was fun, interesting and very helpful, especially when I had a hard time getting back in my kayak. We saw at least 20 dolphins jumping and swimming all around us, as close as 10 feet from our kayaks. this is absolutely the most amazing... More

Friends and I have been vacationing together for somewhere between 10 and 14 years (depending on which particular friend you ask). This year, we traveled to Virginia Beach for the first time and knew as soon as we found Kayak Nature Tours that their Dolphin Adventure would be right up our alley. A group of 8-10 adults in their 20's... More

Awesome first time kayaking with my wife. Guides were fun, laid back, and knowledgeable. Well worth the time and money for sure. Lots of dolphins to see and watch, but none as close as I was hoping for. I think the early morning trip would have been best, but we decided to go at the last minute and still made... More

This was a wonderful way to spend the morning!! The crew was on time, ready and extremely professional, fun and pleasant. I was very lucky that the dolphins were everywhere and super active that morning. The water conditions were great and it was a beautiful morning to paddle and explore. I feel the cost was more than reasonable for 2... More

Sorry guys but im disapointed, we haven't seen any daulphin on the tour but the worst was that we stayed in front of the same house for 2 and a half hour and all this for 60$ its wayyyyyy too expensive. I regret going there

We are sorry you are so disappointed. Unfortunately this is a wild dolphin trip and we cannot promise that you will see dolphins. However, this is the only trip in 18 years where we did not see any dolphins at all. We needed to keep paddling to the south for the safety of our group to prevent them from getting... More

Had a really great time. Dan is super cool, friendly, and knowledgable of the areas history and local biology. A must-do if you're in the area and have a morning or afternoon available. Inexpensive, fun, adventurous. Do it!

We had a great time kayaking with the dolphins! The area was beautiful. Kayaks were in good condition. It was really great getting them out into the water and being so close to the dolphins. The day we were there, it seemed like we were chasing the dolphins. My only complaint was that it got boring after awhile and we... More
