Thar' She Blows!
Wildlife isn't the first thing that usually comes to mind when thinking of Virginia Beach, but get in a boat and head out to sea, and all of that changes. The Virginia Aquarium offers wildlife boat tours that leave from Rudee Inlet year round, with humpback whales spotted from December through March, and dolphins plentiful the rest of the year. The tour is great for adults and kids alike, as volunteers and staff are on board to explain the marine and marsh ecosystems and answer any questions.
