Boat Trips

Ocean Collections

Join us for our most interactive tour as families have the opportunity to assist in the collection of fish, invertebrates, and plankton using the same tools and methods as marine scientists. Put your observation and investigation skills to the test as we identify adaptations that marine animals possess to survive their special habitat. Please arrive at 8:30am for sign-in and boarding.


Trips are subject to boating conditions, but will not be canceled due to precipitation. To confirm trip status, please call the Virginia Aquarium at(757) 385-FISH.


Tips and What to Wear: Please dress appropriately for the elements. Non-skid shoes, sunscreen, and sunglasses are recommended. Allow ample time for parking.  Children under 3 must be included in your reservation.
