While you don't normally think of fishing when vacationing in Virginia, Virginia Beach happens to be one of the premier fishing destinations in the United States.  Many fishing charters offer year round service for 1/2 day, full day, and multi day charters.  Families will find it a great way to spend time together, while many fishing enthusiasts will think they were in heaven. 

Sites like GuideandCharter.com allow you to find charters before you go to save money and time. However do not fret, because many charters will book same day trips if you are lucky and happen to find them on the dock.  Fishing species range from redfish to shark and everything in between.  Make sure you ask the charter what you can expect to catch as many go for different species.
