My kids loved it. 90 minutes of cruising down the oceanfront to the opening of the Chesapeake bay. We saw about a dozen dolphin along the way. A little pricey but worth it.

This was my favorite part of visiting Virginia Beach! They guarantee a dolphin siting or you get to go on it again for free. It was a hot day so an hour and a half boat cruise felt amazing and of course we got to see some dolphins. They also have a bar to buy pop, drinks and snacks at... More

Our whole family enjoyed the ride. We had a chance to see a newborn dolphin in the wild with its mother.

Dolphins are the main attraction, but I enjoyed even more the sights and the drinks I had. Very relaxing and inspirational specialy if you take the sunset tour. You will get perfect sunset pictures during the cruise. good price for what I got.

My husband and I took the tour on 6/20/15. We really enjoyed it. We saw about 10 dolphins. They were right next to the boat. The captain stopsin the area of the dolphins, and turns the baot around so that everyone can get a good look at the dolphins. We got great pics. The boat ride was about 1 1/2... More
