Whale Watching Trip:  Cost:  25.00 per person for a 2 hour cruise.  You go a couple miles out in the water is all.  Supposedly you may see dolphins, seals  porpoises,  sea turtle, pelicans, and various whales.  We didn't see anything except to far off sightings that were one blow hole and one arched back.  It was so quick by the time we brought the camera up to our eye, it was gone!  Suggestions to go:  Sunscreen in Summer,  light jacket in spring, jacket in fall/winter.  Camera/film, water, Dramamine if you get ill.  Stable shoes (the boat rocks so something with a rubber sole), and cash in case you want a snack (small snacks on ship.  Location: Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center 717 General Booth Boulevard, Virginia Beach, VA 23451
