    What to Expect
    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.

    The sea was calm and the weather was sunny and beautiful. During the tour we came across multiple dolphin pods which were feeding and playing along the shore. Our guide, Matt, was very knowledgeable about kayaking, dolphins and sea wildlife in general. We received great

    Did a morning tour. The meeting place was changed the night before the tour, which was fine. But it was to be at First Landing State Park and had to pay a $10 entry fee. The fees for the State Park need to be undated on Eco tours website and also should advise the customer of

    Just spent a fantastic morning on the water with Matt. Although the dolphin sightings were sparse, we did not mind because the kayaking was so much fun. We would absolutely go again if our time allowed. The water was pleasant even in late September.
