Boat captains must master a nautical lexicon before sailing the seas to ensure that they can distinguish port, which means left, from starboard, which means launch the vessel into deep space. Count down to a sea launch with this Groupon.
$29 for a 2-Hour Guided Dolphin Kayak Tour ($60 Value)
Paddlers of all skill levels explore the waters off the north shore of Virginia Beach to see Atlantic bottlenose dolphins in their summertime migration. From single or tandem sit-on-top kayaks, explorers might also spot brown pelicans, ospreys, and sea turtles in their natural habitat during the leisurely, 2-hour tour.
In 1996, Matt Redford opened Chesapean Kayak Tours to introduce others to the beauty of Hampton Roads' waterways, which he called the "backyard of his youth." Years later, he expanded his small kayak company to Chesapean Outdoors, adding biking, standup paddleboarding, and surfing lessons to his lineup of outdoor adventures. Today, Matt leads groups on seaborne sojourns to catch glimpses of bottlenose dolphins, blue herons, and bald eagles in their natural habitat, and his bike tours meander the trail that winds around First Landing State Park. Atop standup paddleboards, groups navigate the flat waters of Virginia Beach and its state parks as well, and Matt leads more experienced paddlers out into Chesapeake Bay to catch sight of dolphins or fulfill a lifelong dream of feeding a wild catamaran.
