Sunset Dolphin Watching

Sunset dolphin watching can be one of the highlights of your time in Virginia Beach. Sunset cruises on Virginia Beach last approximately an hour and a half and depart nightly, except Monday nights at 6:30pm beginning Memorial Day thru Labor Day. Heading down the coast toward the historic Cape Henry, you’ll get the chance to see dolphins in action interacting with one another. These sunset cruises are not only enjoyable, but very historic. Cruise the very waters that the English settlers traveled before landing in 1607. Navy warships and commercial tankers entering or departing the bay and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel are also visible on our sunset cruises.

Dolphins are often regarded as one of Earth's most intelligent animals and are very social. They travel in groups of usually up to a dozen. It’s not uncommon to catch them acting playful with each other. Dolphins occasionally leap above the water surface, and perform acrobatic figures in the air. This is a chance to see them in their natural habitat. Unlike an aquarium setting, dolphin watching trips are a rare glimpse into their natural surroundings. The Chesapeake Bay is often referred as "Dolphin Disneyland". Whether its dolphin watching, bird watching or a fishing cruise we can show you all Virginia Beach has to offer.
