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.

Kayaked Broad Bay off First Landing State Park as a birthday gift. Tour guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. As a local to this area, would recommend this for vacationers and to locals as well! We had a great time.

Had a great time on the Dolphin Adventure. For first time kayaker, the instructions were clear and straight forward and we easily got out on the water. Dolphins playing around us for the duration of the trip. From the reservation through the "landing" the instructors were professional and gave us an experience we will always remember.

I had a great time kayaking around the Norfolk Botanical Gardens on a "sunset tour." Despite the cold and blustery weather, the group seemed to have a very good time. The guides were patient in explaining the how-tos of kayaking, added a little humor in explaining the various strokes, and made sure we felt comfortable. My only complaint is that... More

Kayaking at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens with Kayak Nature Tours was a special treat! Even though we had a cloudy day, the tour was beautiful. Our Guide was great and had very interesting information to impart about the surrounding nature. I loved kayaking through the Garden channels and going under the beautiful bridges since I have walked the trails there... More

My wife and I (both senior citizens) had a great time poking around the marshes of First Landing State Park. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly, the weather was beautiful, and the overall experience first rate.

This was my husband and my first time kayaking. Zach, our guide, taught us how to kayak and took us on an adventure. We went through marshy areas and navigated some tight spaces under a bridge. He was patient with all of us and worked hard to make us comfortable in a new experience.

Would totally recommend this trip! Only my second time in a kayak and it was lots of fun. "Crashed" on the way in - in only about six inches of water, so not a big deal. It was great to be out on the ocean, rolling in the waves. I've had some issues with motion sickness before, but didn't feel... More

My son and I attended the Dolphin tour. We had the best time. The dolphins were everywhere! Many of them popped up very close to our kayaks also. Our guides were informative and a lot of fun. We made some great memories

My boyfriend and I went on the dolphin tour and had a blast. There were so many dolphins out during the 10am trip. We probably saw anywhere from 20-30 dolphins in their pods of 2-6. We saw a couple of babies with their mothers which was, of course, a highlight. Many times we were just 5 feet away from the... More

Choose this company based on reviews and glad I did. A couple of Tropical Depressions and Hurricane Hermine were coming up the coast and creating weather issues. They monitored the storm and when it became clear that our tour would have to be cancelled they worked with us to move to a different day and a different location. We ended... More
