A dolphin cruise with us is the essential trip for both the aquatic enthusiast and the fun-seeking vacationer! Come look for dolphins in Virginia Beach!
Wind power? We’re a fan!
As part of the area’s dedication to a clean environment & renewable energy, two test wind turbines have been placed ~23 miles offshore of Virginia Beach.
Join us as we take a cruise out to view them while keeping an eye out for wildlife as we travel along. The area around the turbines has already proven to be a hotspot for many different animals, including oceanic manta rays, sea turtles, and sharks!
Colleagues from the project along with our own researchers who are studying the area will be on board to share information & answer questions.
- Dress for the weather! It will be slightly cooler out on the water. Layers and close-toed shoes with traction are recommended. Trips may be cancelled due to high winds creating unfavorable boating conditions, but will be conducted when it is raining.
- Departure is from Rudee Inlet at the Virginia Beach Fishing Center. Parking is free while you are on the trip.
- Boarding begins 30 minutes prior to trip departure. Please allow time to check-in at our office before the trip.
