Porpoiseful Adventures is not just about seeing, up close, God’s most amazing and fun filled creatures - the dolphins. It's also an opportunity to see and learn about a wide variety of other points of interest. Captain Jim, and his son James, are a wealth of knowledge about the sights you will see during your relaxing, fun-filled tour around our corner of the beautiful and historic Chesapeake Bay.
The magnificent Chesapeake Bay connects waterways all the way from Baltimore and Washington D.C. to the Atlantic Ocean.
The 17 mile long Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel connects Cape Henry to Virginia’s Eastern Shore.
Lynnhaven Inlet is home to the world famous Lynnhaven oyster breeding grounds, and to the operations of the Virginia and Maryland Pilots who safely navigate ships from around the globe to their destinations within the Chesapeake Bay.
Cape Henry is where the nation’s original English settlers first made landfall before moving up the James River to establish Jamestown, where our country was born. Then there is the flourishing seafood industry, the pelicans and a multitude of other sea birds and sea life.
After your cruise, you may want to enjoy a fabulous fresh seafood dinner at any one of the waterfront restaurants along the tranquil Lynnhaven Inlet, such as the world famous Bubba’s.
Each trip is an exciting and unique experience. So, whether you want to simply relax and take in the view and salt breeze, or have a desire to learn about the fascinating points of interest that you will pass along the way, Capt. Jim and James are at your service.
