Make your way to First Landing State Park where this tour begins, and start by getting fitted with an easy-to-use, sit-on-top kayak. The boats are well suited to even beginning boaters, and after a short briefing on kayak safety and technique, you'll be ready to launch your kayak into the Chesapeake Bay.

Follow a route along the shoreline that’s especially good for sighting dolphins, which travel along the coast in small pods. Enjoy the cooler temperatures of the early evening, and spot some of the diverse seabirds that thrive in the Chesapeake Bay.

Paddle as far as the Cape Henry Lighthouses, a pair of historic signal lights that guide vessels into the Chesapeake Bay. See the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel light up in the evening sun as you make the return trip to the beach at First Landing State Park, and pause to photograph the coast in the warm, evening light. This 2-hour kayak tour concludes at First Landing State Park.

The tour guides were wonderful and very personable and knowledgeable about the area. We saw 2 dolphins at the start of the tour. Be aware that if you are 2 in a group you will be on a double kayak unless specified which wasn't a big deal for us. Overall great views and a nice activity

Thank you! Yes, double kayaks are often easier for people because they have twice the paddling power. But we can provide singles if needed and requested.

Our guide, Ryder, contributed greatly to our experience by providing us with interesting information on the area. He kept watch and finally spotted a pod of dolphins for us and took pictures for us. It was thrilling and so very peaceful to be out on the Chesapeake Bay in a kayak. And not to forget to mention the variety of birds that soared and danced and performed in the sky for and all around us. We will always remember and be grateful to Chesapeake Outdoors for providing us this memorable experience - one we will be reflecting back on for years... THANK YOU, RYDER!

We arrived for the tour and it was a very windy day and the tour operator very professionally and kindly explained the potential risk and excessive difficulty in paddling in such windy conditions. He was fully prepared to take anyone who was willing to participate or provide a full refund. We appreciate the honesty and integrity of the tour operator.
