A sailing excursion is one of the best ways to get a sense of just how important the river and harbor are to Norfolk. Besides being under sail is fun. Along with two-hour narrated sunset and daytime harbor cruises, the American Rover offers special outings. During the Hands on Sailing Adventure–great for kids — learn how to tie sailors’ knots and how to set the sails. On the Red Sails and Ales Sunset Cruise, down beer and barbecue and dance to live music.
Tip: Book the popular July 4th Fireworks cruise well in advance.
