About Kayak Nature Tours
Dolphin Kayaking Tours are the most exciting "thing to do in Virginia Beach". ADVANCE RESRVATONS REQUIRED! Our 2.5 hour guided Kayak Dolphin Tours start in April and continue through October, where you can experience wild Dolphins up close and personal. This is our most exciting kayak adventure launching through the surf into the Atlantic Ocean. We also launch this trip from The Chesapeake Bay for those who prefer a calmer launch experience to see the Dolphins. We have been operating since 1996 as a professional guided kayak tour company in Virginia Beach. We have built an excellent reputation among local guests and visitors alike. Our other 2.5-hour tours take place on calm inland protected waters to First Landing State Park and The Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge or our sunset tour in the beautiful Norfolk Botanical Gardens. ADVANCE RESRVATONS ARE REQUIRED! We provide all the gear: Lifejacket, kayak with seat cushion and back rest, paddle, and a guide in their own kayak. Beginner

Our Kayak Dolphin Adventure on First Landing Beach was a fun experience! The guides are polite, patient, and relaxed. It was exhilarating to be on the water and see the local fauna up close. You are free to go at your own pace, explore at your leisure and comfort level, and we felt very safe the entire time. The tour is moderately priced and of great value in my opinion, with rentals included. I definitely see this as a must-do for tourists, especially if travelling as a family or group of friends. For locals, this is just a regular daily occurrence, swimming with the dolphins that pass through the Bay.

We took our granddaughters to Virginia Beach for a vacation. This was the highlight of our week - a wonderful experience we will never forget. We saw several dolphins!

I went solo for the dolphin kayak experience , which involved kayaking in a very calm Chesapeake Bay for about 2.5 hours. I am 61 yrs old and an active person and experienced at lake kayaking, and it was just the right comfort level for my ability. The owner Randy was very thorough in getting my information and in sharing info at the booking time. There were about 10 people in our group and 2 really great young men as our guides. I took the 12 pm booking time because the 9:00 am was full. There were maybe 6 or seven dolphins that came fairly close after about 1.5. hours, but I was a little disappointed that we did not see more. I think the morning time would have been better. Next time, I will book on the first day I arrive so I can get the time I want. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I can't say enough about the great guides and the company.

Absolutely a must do. As a local we try to try enjoy all the adventures of the area. We kayaked around the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. As a member of the NBG we try to go as often as possible. It's beautiful, peaceful and one of our favorite places in Virginia Beach/Norfolk. We did the Kayaking to go through the gardens from a different view. Well worth it!! We loved every moment.
