It was a fun tour. The tour is 2 hours long. $21 per person. We got to see the dolphins in different parts of the ocean. They even swam by us. I took some cool shots of the dolphins close to our boat. The crew takes a souvenir picture in case you want to buy it for $10. It was... More

we took the sunset 7PM cruise..... But we couldn't see a single dolphin.... Although the sunset view was ok. Try going during day time...you might have more chances to view dolphins. But if you don't see any dolphins....then this tour is not more than riding a boat....

Took a dolphin sighting tour on the Rudee Flipper. It was great and we had a blast! We liked the overall tour. It was nice that the boat offered a snack bar and loved the group/family picture that was offered. Overall, very cool experience.

Second time we took this cruise to see the dolphins. Great informative staff and a wonderful boat ride to see the beach strip. We saw lots of dolphins and pelicans on the 11:00 cruise.

Well worth the money. This was very relaxing and informative. The staff was very nice and knowledgeable, they answered any question that was given to them. Did you know dolphins used to be land dwellers? We saw many dolphins including a mom with her baby. Also during the tour saw a us naval ship very cool.

Our family enjoyed our time on Rudee Flipper. The trip breaks down into about 30 minutes going out to the dolphins. You go right along the Virginia Beach Boardwalk so it's fun to look at the hotels and what all is going on along the beach. Then you stop for about 30 minutes. We saw many dolphins. Sometimes you were... More

Going on the Dolphin Cruise is well worth the time and expense. In the 3 hours I think we saw about 30 Dolphins. They feed in front of the boat and play in its wake at the back. Watching the Pelicans and other sea birds feeding is a wonderful plus you don't expect.

My husband, 11 year old son, and myself went out on the Rudee Flipper one day during our stay in Va Beach. I kept watching them from the beach and decided that it was something we just had to do! It's listed plain as day when you research this that it is a 90 minute tour. It was reasonably priced... More
