Join us this spring, summer, and fall on an unforgettable 90-minute excursion aboard the Atlantic Explorer in search of Virginia's most common and charismatic marine mammal, the bottlenose dolphin. Brown pelicans, bald eagles, and other seabirds are frequently sighted, along with sea turtles.
As leaders in coastal and marine environmental conservation, research, and preservation, the Virginia Aquarium's Sea Adventures boat trips bring the ocean to you. Since 1989, our boat trips have been staffed by knowledgeable marine educators engaging in responsible viewing practices, research, and conservation. A portion of all ticket sales support our education, research and conservation initiatives.
