If you are staying in the Hampton Roads/Virginia Beach area, I highly recommend an excursion on the Rudee Rocket. They have two tours in which to see the dolphins in. If you want a leisurely ride, take the Flipper ride. If you want a ride with a bit more excitement, then this is the ride for you. Both tours provide... More

Amazing 10am dolphin watching on the Rudee Rocket. Amazing people running the boat. So much fun and so many Dolphins! We went for the sunset tour that night but it was cancelled due to rough waters but it's okay. Deff doing this again when I come back!

Rudee's rocket was a large speed boat with padded seats and seat belts, we wondered why we needed those, but we soon found out as we bounced over the waves a some speed accompanied by rock music. It was great fun and we saw a few dolphins as well. Prepare to get pretty wet if you go.

Very very fun! The price is reasonable and we saw lots of dolphins. Must go again when we go back. The kids really enjoyed getting a little wet as well.

My wife found this excursion surfing the Tripadvisor site, looking for things to do on our Virginia Beach vacation. If you're on a budget take the 10am boat ride and save $5 a head. If you do nothing else when you visit VB, you have to stop here and take the Rudee Rocket!!!! Britney and Captain Wes knew exactly how... More

This was a different way to see dolphins. The whole family had a blast especially when the boat took off at top speed. The crew were all friendly and fun . We went and saw a group of 10 dolphins where my daughter saw two jump out of the water. It was a fun trip on the water and my... More
