It was a delightful trip. I leaned a lot about the area. And the music was fun, the songs were perfect to sing along with.

Fascinating and informative cruise on the Elizabeth River and an up-close and personal journey through nautical history onboard the smooth riding replica of a 19th Century schooner through the passageways and berths of modern seafaring transportation. Beautiful sights of Norfolk by night. Sublime music from...More

Third time I have taken it and never disappoints. Great place to take visitors to the area. A little education, a little music and a little time to yourself!

We have a fun time whenever we go. It is a relaxing and beautiful cruise. The guitar singer makes the experience even better. Order a drink, sit back and enjoy the peace of the river. Best part is the price is very reasonable.
