Owner description: We are the most exciting "thing to do in Virginia Beach." Our 2.5 hour guided Kayak Dolphin Tours start in late May 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 have been operating for 16 years as a professional guided kayak tour company in the Hampton Roads area. We offer fun, exciting, and memorable kayak tours throughout Southeast Virginia. 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 The Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge, First Landing State Park, North West River, or our sunset tour in the beautiful Norfolk Botanical Gardens. We have 2.5 hour trips to other locations and all day trips to the Deserted Beaches of the Eastern Shore and Lake Drummond in the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge.

From the reservation process to the experience, everything was top notch. I had never kayaked before, but with Dan's instructions, everyone in my tour did excellent. It was a windy day so we got quite a workout; yes! We saw many schools of dolphins! It was a great experience!! Thank you KNT!!

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

I am so happy we decided to do this ! The guide was wonderful, he explained every detail, and put me at ease for the trip. The waters were perfect, I didn't get flipped at all! We saw soo many dolphins, we followed the pod, and got to see a baby! Highly recommend doing this! You can't beat $60 to see dolphins so close, and have an amazing guide taking you out! SO HAPPY!!

“Good Experience”

Our kids had a great time on this adventure. The kayak tour exceeded their expectations. They saw up to 30 dolphins. One word of constructive feedback is to make sure people know where to stop when paddling out.

“Highlight of Virginia Beach trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

Kayaking in the ocean was not only the best way to see a LOT of dolphins, but the best bargain too. The trip really is suitable for all skill levels as the guides are extremely helpful and knowledgable. Thane and Justin were awesome. All of the tips on the website are good. I would do it again although I might want to try the other kayaking trip sometime.

“Quite an experience!”

We showed up early in the morning and met with out tour guide Steve and a nice group of fellow adventurers. Once we learned the basics we were off to see the sights. He said we paddled about 5 miles altogether but it was worth it
