There’s no better place to spend a summer vacation than in Virginia Beach but with the higher temperatures you’ll probably need some cooler activities to beat the summer heat. Cool off this summer with these on the water adventures in Virginia Beach!
Swim in the ocean
Head to the beach for a day of fun in Virginia Beach and let the waves wash over you with some swimming in the ocean. If you’re looking for a classic way to spend a day on your summer vacation, this is it.
Take a dip in the pool
Guests at Sundial Inn can enjoy a refreshing dip in our outdoor pool if you want to be closer to your room after an afternoon of swimming.
Ride on top of the ocean’s waves with a surf board rental or take a lesson with VB Surf Sessions! Take a two-hour lesson or register for a more in-depth and multi-day surf camp to surf like the pros. Lessons and camps include all of your gear, small groups for personalized instruction, and all the fun surfing has to offer.
For a more leisurely surfing-type of activity, try Stand-Up Paddleboarding (SUP). SUP is great way to explore our waterways, see wildlife, and get in some exercise on your vacation without even realizing it!
Paddle out for some fun with a kayaking adventure! Whether you want calmer waters on the Rudee Inlet or out on the ocean to see dolphins, there’s no shortage of kayaking excursions around Virginia Beach. Many tour companies also offer a sunset trip for amazing views of the sunset dipping behind the horizon.
Rent a Jet ski
Feel the sea breezes and ocean spray as you ride across the water on a Jet ski rental or with a guided tour. Ride solo or tandem with friends or younger travelers for an exhilarating adventure on the water.
Take a ride on a Rudee Tour
Satisfy your need for speed on a Rudee Rocket Speed Boat Tour! Not only will you be able to spot dolphins on this thrilling boat ride, you’ll probably get splashed on as the boat makes its twists and turns through the water.
Sail to new heights with a parasailing adventure just off the shore of Virginia Beach! The bird’s eye view of Virginia Beach is impressive and you can enjoy cooler breezes as soar hundreds of feet in the air.
Take to the skies with a flyboard rental or lesson that uses water propulsion to let you fly over the water. It’s a truly unique experience flying with a water jetpack and if you’ve been looking for something new to try on your Virginia Beach vacation, this just might be it!
Finally, escape the heat and learn more about our aquatic life with an indoor adventure at the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center! The Center also offers boat trips for a fun outdoor and educational excursion.
