About Rudee Rocket
When we say, "Just Add Water and 2000 Horse Power," you know we are talking about the Rudee Rocket cruise along the Virginia Beach Oceanfront! Bring your family and friends and climb aboard our 70-foot bright yellow speedboat. This trip will have you experience the Atlantic Ocean and mouth of the Chesapeake Bay like never before! Enjoy a thrilling, fast ride at exciting speeds with plenty of seating for everyone! During the 60-minute cruise, you will watch bottlenose dolphins jump and surf in the boat's wake as the Rocket speeds along the oceanfront. It will then make its way along the shoreline past the famous and historic Cape Henry Lighthouses and our beautiful gold coast. With the throttles down and wind in your hair, you'll understand why we are THE greatest thrill ride on the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. All trips depart from the Virginia Beach Fishing Center.

This was a great experience. You're guaranteed to see dolphins but it's not manufactured. We saw several pods and they even wave surfed behind the boat for a while. It was cool to see mom's with baby dolphins beaching the water together. You do get wet on the way back. We didn't get completely drenched, which was nice. It was a great way to cool off on a hot day. The tour guide provided lots of interesting details for all age groups. I'd highly recommend this for kids.

Don't wear heavy earrings! I thought mine would rip out on the fast, bronco busting return trip. One wild ride. We saw a ton of dolphins on this trip. Very fast boat. I got a poncho and didn't get soaked as I wanted to go to dinner afterwqrds. Fun ride.

Our family loved this! (Two girls ages 7 &9). We saw a bunch of dolphins and loved seeing them jump and play in the boat’s wake. The fast boat ride was a lot of fun and be prepared to get wet! Glad we wore our swim suits! Definitely recommend.
