Boat Trips

Whale Watching

Join us for an unforgettable ~2.5 hour adventure in search of whales, dolphins, seals,and seabirds. Staff & volunteers trained by Aquarium experts share a program built upon our own research and conservation efforts and three decades of experience. We adhere to all responsible wildlife viewing guidelines.

Guests should check-in 30 minutes prior to the boat departure time at the dock adjacent to the Bay & Ocean Pavilion parking lot at 717 General Booth Blvd. Day-of tickets are available onsite if space allows.

Trips are subject to boating conditions,but will not be canceled due to precipitation. Cancelations are made as far in advance as possible, and you will be contacted with the opportunity to reschedule your reservation. Tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable unless the trip has been cancelled by the Virginia Aquarium.

Tips & What to Wear Please dress in layers, non-skid shoes, and appropriately for the elements. All children under 3 must be included in your reservation, per U.S. Coast Guard regulations.
