We arranged for a custom trip to head up to Norfolk Naval Station as my ship was homeported here in the mid-1990’s. Captain Jay was not available so Captain Donny took us out. He was friendly and informative. Our group ranged in age from 17-76 and he handled the needs of each with ease. As stated early in these comments Norfolk Naval Station is not a standard itinerary for this company. Captain Donny came prepared with some background on the Naval Base and provided personal insights as well. This was a nice bonus and was very much appreciated. I enjoyed narrating a lot of the tour myself and the family seemed impressed. Things I didn’t really know I just made up… and they never knew the difference. Good on ya Patriotic Excursions for working with our custom trip request and executing it flawlessly.

I booked the military appreciation/dolphin watching tour as birthday gift for my husband who served in the Marines. Captain Jay was great and my husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed our time out on the water! We will definitely do it again and highly recommend Patriotic Excursions for locals or tourists who are interested in learning about military history in Hampton Roads or just having a fun time jetting around the Chesapeake Bay watching the dolphins.

Very happy with our trip today. Captain Dom was great to put up with us boring folks….it was only my boyfriend and I and we just wanted to see dolphins and the Navy ships. He showed us the lighthouses and took us to See the ships. I was completely delighted with this experience! Very friendly and was welcomed as soon as we go there. Will do this again…maybe in the evening next time!!!!!

Four adults took the Military Awareness/Dolphin Tour on Memorial Day, and it was fantastic! Dom was super friendly and informative and gave us a fast ride complete with exciting maneuvers! We saw dolphins in the bay, lighthouses at Cape Henry, hotels and houses along the oceanfront, and military boats and vehicles at Little Creek Amphibious Base. Dom answered our questions about seal team operations, Fort Story military base, and the various ships in the bay/ocean. He even "buzzed" Chic's Beach, so we could wave at my children and grandsons who were playing at the Bay!!! This was a perfect activity to do with our out-of-town guests...and we enjoyed it as much as they did!

My wife and I really enjoyed our Patriotic Excursion ride today. Highly recommended for more than just a "sight seeing" ride
