          It’s only 10 miles away from the Marine Science Center, I can’t think of anything better then a warm meal after a cold day out on the water. Here’s the menu to peruse-it looks great! : http://bluepetespungo.com/menu/

            10 miles isn’t bad at all, menu looks good.

    My sister Kim and daughter Mirian will be joining me (so we need 1 child’s ticket). With 3 including a car seat, we won’t be carpooling.

    I would like to be a rider. White Oak is easy for me.

    Hello, I live near the aquarium, I see the event is full but there appears to still be tickets available that day on the 10:00AM boat. Is there a reason why the event is closed? Would like to join you! ~ Kindly, Heather

    Checking ahead, right now the forecast is to be sunny with a high of 37 degrees. It’ll be chilly, but at least it won’t be -2!!

  8. AnnieV 4 months ago

    So sorry, I need to cancel on this. I will call to see if I can get a refund on my ticket. If they are short I will hold for someone to take my place. Take pictures!!!!

    I would like to ride with someone who plans on going to lunch at Blue Pete’s. I need to take Dramamine for the boat ride & fear my driving wouldn’t be the best afterwards.

  10. AnnieV 4 months ago

    I can not get a refund but if someone takes my place we can switch names on my $28 ticket.
    WHAAA! can’t make it and gawd you’re going to Blue Pete’s???? Triple Whaaaa!

  11. CateW 4 months ago

    One spot open

  12. KristenAllegood 3 months ago

    3 spaces opened. A little too chilly for the kid this weekend. Have a great time and I hope that you see some awesome whales!

  13. AnnieV 3 months ago

    If anyone signs up please take my ticket!

    Rachel from the aquarium just called me and said the trip was cancelled due to unfavorable weather conditions – wind. I went ahead and got a refund for my ticket but hopefully this can be re-scheduled.

    Thank you Kim.

      GONE IT!!! You are right Elizabeth…just got the call as well and did a refund. I am so sorry folks. It’s not in the cards for this weekend!!! I will reschedule—stay tuned!

    I have reposted the event for the new date, February 10th. If the aquarium hasn’t called you yet regarding this weekends’ ticket–when they do you have the option of telling them to rescheduling your ticket to 2.10 (10am) at that time. If you have already claimed your refund, you will need to go online or call and do a whole new order for the 10th (sorry). And if you can’t make it on the 10th, make sure you change your RSVP…but I hope you can make it!!

    • AnnieV 3 months ago

      I got a refund, will buy new closer to time. They had plenty of spots. I just hated wasting my ticket cause I am sure I would not use it without going with CVT.

  16. Jen123 3 months ago

    Really glad you rescheduled it Kim!

  17. Carole O. 3 months ago

    I am going to bow out of the reschedule & take my chances if I can go. Our townhouse is supposed to be finished right around then.

  18. JoyceFoster 3 months ago

    I am happy that you rescheduled this!

  19. Jen123 3 months ago

    Hopefully Blue Pete’s is still on the menu:)

      Blue Pete’s is DEFINITELY still on the menu!

      • AnnieV 3 months ago

        My girlfriend in VA Beach just won another $50 gift from them! Check out their page, it’s just like and share! It works, I got a $100 gift from Blue Petes. can’t wait to use it with you all!

  20. CateW 3 months ago

    The Virginia Beach weather curse continues (j/k)!! Well at least we didn’t drive half of the way there before gettIng the cancellation call. I’d still like to go but can’t commit to 2/10 so will free up a spot for now.

  21. Laura S. 3 months ago

    I would love to be a rider if there’s a space open. Blue Pete’s looks to good I’m in!

  22. CindyH 3 months ago

    I’m sad to miss this, but I have a funeral to go Saturday. Please take & post lots of pictures.

  23. JoyceFoster 3 months ago

    I will meet you guys there on Saturday.

    Good news! Whales are not afraid of rain!

    Whale Watching in the Rain?
    Some people may be discouraged by the rain when they are booking a whale watching experience, but it can turn out to still be an amazing tour. The whales live and play in water so they don’t care whether it’s raining or not.

      Thanks, Keith!

      I’d add that in my experience watching aquatic mammals, they seem to show themselves more when it’s raining or a thunderstorm recently passed. The rain, and more so thunderstorms, causes sedimentary life in the ocean to rise to the surface providing easy snacks, plus the storms drive away most humans. I was on the kayaking with dolphins trip we did this summer mentioned in this event page and it poured heavily, with very severe thunderstorms, just before we got out there when we saw the humpback whale (plus lots of dolphins), so I’m hoping the rain brings us some good luck in seeing some whales.

      Additionally, I was reading some reviews on Yelp about this whale watching trip with the VA Aquarium: it sounds like the boats are very large (100+ capacity) and have an indoor part of the boat that has windows, a snack bar, and is heated; so it sounds like there is an easy escape from the rain/wind/cold, if desired.

      Indeed, ready for a #WHALEOFATIME

        Is there a porpoise to this conversation, or are you two just spouting off nonsense?

        • Philip Leone 3 months ago

          We’re just sharing our in-depth knowledge about marine life for the halibut.

    Thanks Kim! I had a wonderful time with everyone! It wasn’t too cold, and it didn’t rain much, all in all a nice ride…no whales but many asylum of loons and gulps of cormorants, wow! all that new knowledge of marine life made me hungry —- Blue Pete’s crab soup…the bestest!
