Rudee Inlet is center of the watersports culture Virginia Beach is known for. With parasailing, jet skiing, fishing, and dining on some of Virginia Beach’s best seafood, a day at Rudee Inlet is sure to be a day your family will remember forever.
Adventure Parasail & Rudee Inlet Jet Ski has been operating in Virginia Beach since the 1980s. They are a one-stop-shop for all watersports! Take to the skies on one of their signature parasailing trips by yourself or with your friends; Adventure Parasail can accommodate up to three people in one flight. Enjoy the ocean breeze as you glide over the beautiful Virginia Beach. They offer gentle and dry takeoffs and landings from a Coast Guard-certified parasail boat.
Rudee Inlet Jet Ski offers a large selection of one, two, and three-person Yamaha WaveRunners for you to take out into the Atlantic Ocean inside of their riding area (which happens to be the largest in Virginia Beach)! Between the sky and the seas, Adventure Parasail & Rudee Inlet Jet Ski have you covered for a day on the water.
Looking for something a little more high-speed? Hop on board The Rudee Rocket! The Rudee Rocket is a 70-foot long Ocean Rocket and is the only vessel of its kind in Virginia. The Rocket is the fastest (and wildest) way to see dolphins, lighthouses, and the Virginia Beach oceanfront!
If you’d prefer to stay in a boat, Rudee Tours offers various charter fishing experiences for the whole family. They fish offshore, nearshore, and inshore virtually year-round. With proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and the Chesapeake Bay, the bite out of Rudee Inlet is always promising! Each of their fishing tours are unique; they host 12-hour bass fishing trips, full day fishing, private fishing charters and more! If you are interested in fishing but not sure if you want to dedicate a whole day for the trip, sign up for a night fishing trip or a half day fishing trip.
If you would like to learn more about Virginia’s marine life without fishing, check out one of Rudee Tours’ wildlife viewing trips. Dolphin watching, whale watching, and season-specific wildlife tours are sure to bring some excitement to your vacation and serve as wonderful educational experiences for children and adults alike!
A day on the water is sure to work up an appetite, and luckily Rudee Inlet is home to some of the most amazing seafood this area has to offer. Rockafeller’s Restaurant is just one of the legendary restaurants situated right next to the marina and has been a local favorite since 1989. Sit back and enjoy Virginia Beach’s freshest catch while watching fishermen bringing in their daily haul. The laidback atmosphere offers the perfect place to unwind after a fun-filled day.
Rudee’s Restaurant & Cabana Bar sits right around the corner from Rockafeller’s. Rudee’s has something for everyone: a delicious raw bar, mouthwatering appetizers, fire pit tables, seafood and steak. Because Rudee’s is open for brunch, lunch, and dinner, guests can view the bustle of the marina all day long.
Many of the activities Rudee Inlet offers can be weather-dependent, so it is best to reach out to the vendors directly for more information regarding specific tours and events.
