Seaside dining in Virginia Beach—it doesn’t get any fresher. Take a boat ride along the Lynnhaven River to the Pleasure House Oysters working oyster farm, where you’ll learn how these savory bivalves are harvested, and get to try them on the half shell, plucked fresh from the water beneath you. Lynnhaven Oysters are so legendary they’ve been served to presidents and royalty—and now, you, of course! You’ll tour the farm, learn from the farmer himself, and sip and slurp these delicacies straight out of the river in which they’re raised.
But that’s just the appetizer. Next up is kayaking through a nature preserve on your way to a freshly caught dinner. End your Surf & Adventure Co. Kayak Dinner Tour by gliding up to Blue Pete’s Restaurant, a family-owned spot known for its fresh coastal fare and scenery along the Back Bay.
