Sunset Dolphin Kayak Tours

    What to Expect
    Make your way to First Landing State Park where this tour begins, and start by getting fitted with an easy-to-use, sit-on-top kayak. The boats are well suited to even beginning boaters, and after a short briefing on kayak safety and technique, you'll be ready to launch your kayak into the Chesapeake Bay.

    Follow a route along the shoreline that’s especially good for sighting dolphins, which travel along the coast in small pods. Enjoy the cooler temperatures of the early evening, and spot some of the diverse seabirds that thrive in the Chesapeake Bay.

    Paddle as far as the Cape Henry Lighthouses, a pair of historic signal lights that guide vessels into the Chesapeake Bay. See the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel light up in the evening sun as you make the return trip to the beach at First Landing State Park, and pause to photograph the coast in the warm, evening light. This 2-hour kayak tour concludes at First Landing State Park.

    Matt was very welcoming and professional. The tour started off fun and got even more exciting once the Dolphins popped up to say hello. The tour guidance was also very informative of the history of the area. We had a lot of fun and would come back 100 more times for this great

    We did the sunset tour in June. We paddled to the first stop and never left. We were surrounded by dolphins. They just swam around us for the entire time. The guide gave our group the option to move on to the next site or stay put and we all agree to just stay. There were
