Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center offers winter wildlife watching tours now through
March 16, 2014.
Whale watchers will
search for humpback and fin whales off
the coast of Virginia Beach. Each excursion is narrated by a trained Aquarium educator while experienced
volunteers show whale artifacts and answer questions.
A unique, exciting opportunity for entire families
to experience. You may see brown pelicans,
northern gannets, double-crested cormorants and other sea birds
, all of which make a dramatic
show while feeding on schools of fish.
Local landmarks such as the historic Cape Henry
Lighthouse, DeWitt Cottage and the Old Coast Guard Station may also be visible on some trips, as well as
international shipping traffic and U.S. Navy maneuvers.
