Virginia Beach is a good destination to view humpback, fin, and minke whales migrating to warmer waters. Enjoy a winter wildlife boat trip with Rudee Tours and the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center.
Virginia Beach’s winter wildlife watching tours offer a rare opportunity to possibly spot these majestic creatures up close, as well as brown pelicans, northern gannets, and double-crested cormorants. Be sure to bring your binoculars, and of course, whale sightings are not guaranteed.
The two and a half-hour narrated trips travel past the Cape Henry Lighthouses, the Old Coast Guard Station and other historic landmarks, so the photography opportunities are tremendous.
The 2.5-hour boat trips aboard Atlantic Explorer occur Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from January 2 to March 6, 2016. Tours are offered daily from December 26, 2015 to January 1, 2016. Note that boating conditions and optimal sighting times may require the schedule to shift.
Rates are $27 for adults; $23 for children ages 3 to 11, and children younger than age 3 are free.
The tour departs from the Virginia Aquarium dock.
Join the "whale whisperer" Captain Jeff of the Rudee Flipper at Rudee Tours as he navigates the waters in search of whales and other cold water residents. His tours are offered Wednesday through Sunday from December 26, 2015 to March 31, 2016. He GUARANTEES whale sightings through February 15 or you'll get a second tour for free!
Rates are $28 for adults; $24 for children ages 4 to 11, and children 3 and younger are free.
The tour departs from Rudee Tours at Lake Rudee.
