For a fun, relaxing day on the water, enjoy a boat tour. You can watch dolphins, take in a spectacular sunset, and more. When you are ready for an adventure, the boat tour companies near our Virginia Beach apartments include:

Patriotic Excursions 

After teaching history and political science for nearly 30 years, Captain Jay Leach decided to turn his love of the water into a career. That's how Patriotic Excursions was born. Jay's mission is to tell fascinating stories about Hampton Roads while honoring those who serve our country. All the captains have a military or public service background. They enjoy sharing their knowledge and offer exciting tours you won't soon forget. Choices include sunset dolphin watching, wet and wild bar crawls, and whale and seal watching (December through Mid-March). 

Rudee Tours

With over 40 years of experience giving boat tours around Virginia Beach, Rudee Tours knows how to explore local waters. The friendly captains treat passengers like family. They take pride in offering fabulous tours and collecting data during each trip to show how marine animals use our coastal habitat. Tours include Rudee pocket dolphin, whale watching, and the winter wildlife excursion. 

American Rover Sailing Cruises 

From April through October, the American Rover offers narrated harbor and sunset boat tours around Virginia Beach. They depart daily, and you can help with the sails or even take a turn at the helm. You will enjoy the ride from the shaded top deck, where you'll find comfortable seats and stunning views. To quench your thirst, head below deck to order your favorite beer or a refreshing mixed drink.

For another way to enjoy the water, take some exciting surfing lessons offered by a local school. To call Columbus Station home, please contact us. We will arrange a guided tour, so you can see everything our vibrant community has to offer.
