Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center

This summer when we took a trip kayaking with dolphins, we got extremely lucky and saw a humpback whale. Hoping to parlay our good fortune, I thought we could take a whale watching trip. Only this time, much less luck is needed as several varieties of whales frequent the area during the winter months. This 2-2.5 hour trip will be aboard the Virginia Marine Science Center’s Atlantic Explorer. During the trip, there is a possibility of seeing at least 4 species of whales (minke, finback, humpback, right), dolphins, porpoises, seals and numerous seabirds.

Participants will need to purchase their ticket for the 10am trip on the Virginia  Aquarium website. The cost of the trip is $28.00.

Optional lunch stop in VA Beach after the tour. The CVT charge of $1.00 is waived for this event!
