Overview

Paddle alongside the wild dolphins of Virginia Beach on a 2-hour, small-group kayak tour from North End Beach. Watch for sea birds and other wildlife as you steer an easy to use, sit-on-top kayak along the coast to the Cape Henry Lighthouses. Learn about the Atlantic bottlenose dolphins that swim past the Virginia coast each summer, and explore the shore with an experienced guide.
  • 2-hour dolphin-watching tour by kayak
  • Explore the Virginia Beach coast by kayak
  • Small-group tour
  • Family friendly
  • All necessary equipment included
Meet your guide at North End Beach in Virginia Beach, get fitted out with a boat and learn the basics of kayaking operation and safety. Your sit on top boat is stable, comfortable and suitable for all skill and experience levels, so you can focus on soaking up the scenery and watching for dolphins.

Follow your guide on a route toward the historic Cape Henry Lighthouses that passes through prime dolphin habitat. Atlantic bottlenose dolphins live and swim in groups, and have extraordinary intelligence; if you’re lucky, a dolphin may choose to play right alongside your boat, interacting and showing off. You’ll also see seabirds like the pelicans and ospreys that nest along the coast, and groups occasionally spot a sea turtle or cownose ray slipping beneath the surface.

When you reach Cape Henry Lighthouse turn your boat around for the return trip to North End Beach, where you’ll finish the tour.

Never found tour. No indication of where tour would meet on tour literature. Went to google pinpoint. Wandered up and down beach for an hour looking. 93 degrees. No answer on phone. Concierge tried to find location. No luck. A real nightmare under killer sun. Hl

My wife and I really enjoyed our morning out on the water. We saw plenty of Dolphin. The guides were knowledgeable about some VA Beach history and about the various Dolphin and their habits. Icing on the cake for us was being able to catch a wave on the return bark in.

This was an awesome trip! It is my understanding from talking to our guide that they don't see many dolphins when they go out, but we were able to see a lot of them. I've never been kayaking and was a little concerned that it would he difficult and tiring, but it was actually very easy and relaxing. It was a lot of fun and worth it.

Had a 9:30am tour and it was great! Frazier was the tour guide we had and he was wonderful, explained as much as he could and gave us ton of information about the dolphins and the location itself. You literally see dolphins right in front of you, definitely worth the time and money!
