FORT WOOL CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
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 Capt. John Smith and the First Settlers.
Your tour continues past historic Fort Monroe and the Old Point Comfort Lighthouse. After an awe-inspiring view of the magnificent Chesapeake Bay the cruise will stop for a 45-minute guided walking tour of the Civil War island of Fort Wool (weather permitting).
The highlight of the 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 review of the famous Battle of the Ironclads, as we sail across the waters of the original battle site.
See Nuclear-Powered Submarines!
