The Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel (CBBT) is one of the Mid Atlantic region’s premier destinations for saltwater fishing. Situated at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, the bridge connects the Eastern Shore of Virginia to Virginia Beach.

The Sea Gull Pier, located on the northbound span, allows travelers to pause and enjoy fishing in the Chesapeake Bay.

Vessel traffic around the bridge can get congested, as mariners coverge on the structure to enjoy saltwater fishing, kayaking, sailing, and other activities.

Boats fishing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel typically depart from Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Virginia Beach, Kiptopeake, or Cape Charles.
