This 2 1/2 to 3-hour Harbor Tour departs from the Historic Downtown Hampton waterfront and proceeds out the Hampton River, passing Hampton University and Blackbeard's Point, where the notorious pirate's head was displayed on a pike after his capture off the coast of the Outer Banks.
Entering the Hampton Roads Harbor, you will be sailing the waters of Captain John Smith and the First Settlers.
Your tour continues past historic Fort Monroe and the Old Point Comfort Lighthouse, the oldest continuously operating lighthouse in America.
After an awe-inspiring view of the magnificent Chesapeake Bay the cruise will stop (weather permitting) for a 30-minute guided walking tour of the Civil War Island Fortress of Fort Wool.
The highlight of your tour is an in-depth view of the massive warships at the Norfolk Naval Base, home to aircraft carriers, nuclear-powered submarines, and various types of support ships.
The return trip to Hampton features a captivating narrative of the famous Battle of the Ironclads: the Monitor and the Merrimac!
