Join the Virginia Aquarium, the longest running and most experienced whale watching entity in Virginia, in an immersive encounter with some of the ocean’s most magnificent creatures. The educators onboard will share an amazing program built upon the Aquarium’s own scientific research and 25 years of experience connecting guests with the area’s marine mammal visitors. Whales & Wildlife tours take place on a large, comfortable boat that boasts spectacular views from the outdoor decks, or from cushioned seats inside a heated cabin. Light snacks are available for purchase.
Each adventure is a 2.5 hour exploration in search of whales*, dolphins, seals, and seabirds. Trips begin in December and continue through March on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 2 p.m., and on Saturdays and Sundays at 10a.m. and 2 p.m.
*Whale sightings aren't guaranteed.
