It's true-- Rudee Inlet is THE center for water fun (other than just catching rays and waves) at Virginia Beach. Jet skis, parasailing, dolphin and whale watching...it's here.
Here are the top things to do:
Rudee Jet Ski Rental
Jet skis are only one of the things you can rent here to cruise the inlet: rent Wave Ventures, sports boats, jet boats, and kayaks too. It's next to Big Sam's Restaurant and Raw Bar on the Inlet. They also offer full and half day sport fishing charters.
Hours and Fees: Call for details and be sure to look for coupons in the local visitors guides.

Rudee Inlet is home to one of our very favorite seafood restaurants: Rockafeller's.
Shrimp, lobster, crab cakes, oysters, she crab soup...you name the seafood, they've got it at Rockafeller's. Do NOT miss their Buffalo Style Shrimp, served with homemade bleu cheese dipping sauce, or their Jumbo Lump Crab Cake Dinner (no fillers, all crab!).
