Sunset Dolphin Kayak Tours
From $60.00
Low Price Guarantee
Watch the sun set over Chesapeake Bay on a 2-hour, small-group dolphin tour by kayak from Virginia Beach. Paddle along the coast as you spot Atlantic bottlenose dolphins, and see the Cape Henry Lighthouses and Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel from the water.
What to Expect
Make your way to First Landing State Park where this tour begins, and start by getting fitted with an easy-to-use, sit-on-top kayak. The boats are well suited to even beginning boaters, and after a short briefing on kayak safety and technique, you'll be ready to launch your kayak into the Chesapeake Bay.
Follow a route along the shoreline that’s especially good for sighting dolphins, which travel along the coast in small pods. Enjoy the cooler temperatures of the early evening, and spot some of the diverse seabirds that thrive in the Chesapeake Bay.
Paddle as far as the Cape Henry Lighthouses, a pair of historic signal lights that guide vessels into the Chesapeake Bay. See the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel light up in the evening sun as you make the return trip to the beach at First Landing State Park, and pause to photograph the coast in the warm, evening light. This 2-hour kayak tour concludes at First Landing State Park.

Matt’s guided tour was an easy ocean paddle and we saw bottle nose dolphin up close, osprey and a BALD eagle- so cool. His knowledge of flora and fauna created a story I hadn’t read.

Our group couldn't have had a more fantastic experience! Matt was great to work with; was very accommodating, responsive, & really went out of the way to make sure we had a great time. I couldn't believe how many dolphins we saw and how close...More

We saw so many dolphins! Trip was well organized. Guide knew exactly where dolphins would be. One person in our group had never been kayaking before - now she's hooked.

Probably bathing suit. Cover up if you’d like but nothing too restricting
