Whale Watching

Although humans are not particularly fond of this cold weather that brings the cold water, it’s absolutely perfect for whales! The whales love cooler water, and it’s easy to spot these beautiful creatures in the winter. So bundle up, grab your binoculars, and stake out at the oceanfront to spot some whales! See our article all about whale watching in VA Beach.
