Endless Water Activities in Virginia Beach

The wide open beaches of Virginia Beach are irresistible and will inspire anyone to take a dip. Whether you’re an angler, a wave rider or a floater, you’ll never run out of things to do in the water.


Catch a fish out on the open waters, as there is never an off-season when it comes to fishing in Virginia Beach. Try your luck on one of the many fishing piers, including the Virginia Beach Fishing Pier, Sandbridge Fishing Pier and the pier at Little Island Park. There’s guaranteed to be other anglers there, too, who are ready to cheer you on as you wrestle with your reel for a big one. There are also plenty of fishing charters available if you’d rather head out on a boat and do some deeper water fishing. Check out First Landing Charters, Virginia Beach Fishing Center, AfishnadoVB Fishing Charters, Rebel Sportfishing or AquaMan Sport Fishing Charters, just to name a few.


You can also explore the open waters by boat, either with a rental from somewhere like VB Boat Rentals or Bay Venture Boat Rentals or on a guided boat tour with somewhere like Rudee Tours, the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center or Capt. Jack’s Pirate Ship Adventures. You can even decide what kind of venture you’d like go on, whether it be whale watching, dolphin watching or just a simple ride.


Tune into your wild sild by chasing the waves on a zooming jet ski rented by Rudee Inlet Jet Ski Rentals or Virginia Beach Watersports. Or really rake a risk with Adventure Parasail, where you can soar over the water. If you’re looking more to explore while taking it easy, rent equipment from Tula Paddle Sports Stand Up Paddleboard & Kayaking or Ocean Rentals Ltd. You can even go on a guided tour with Kayak Nature Tours, Ltd.


Not far from the resort area of the Virginia Beach Oceanfront, you can also find Ocean Breeze, the city’s waterpark with everything from a giant wave pool to insane water slides and a children’s section.
