Virginia Beach’s Most Popular Experiences


Head down the Boardwalk
When you’re not out on the water, take a stroll down the 3-mile long boardwalk. Over this ocean-facing promenade, you can take in the surrounding buzz and atmosphere, and enjoy the live music by night.

Take a Look at Cape Henry Lighthouse
Take a walk up (or sail by) this lighthouse that was the first lighthouse built by the federal government. If you take a climb up it, you’ll be treated to some stunning 360-degree view of all of the water there’s to explore and have some boating fun on.

Keep a Keen Eye Out for Whales
Make sure you pack your binoculars and camera when you take a trip to Virginia Beach, as the marine life is rich. Schools of dolphins can be seen from spring through to fall, and from December till March, humpback and fin whales make strides and splashes through the water on their annual migration.

Marathon’s Best Bodies of Water

Explore Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge

To the south of Virginia Beach is Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. This is a sublime area for you to take a tour around on your Virginia Beach boat rental. It contains impressive dunes, untouched marshlands, and elegant little islands for you to tour around.

Loop Round to the Chesapeake Bay

When you take your Virginia Beach boat rental around here, you’ll be sheltered from the rough rift of the Atlantic. If you choose to fish in these bountiful waters, you can expect to pull in some sea bass, trout, tuna, flounder, striper, cobia, mahi-mahi, and mackerel.
