Loved it! Bought a combination ticket for cruise and USS Wisconsin tour. It was a bit chilly but beautiful. The views were magnificent and narrative very informative. So much information that I wish there had been a booklet with it all. Captain navigated wonderfully.

Parking was reasonable and convenient. The crew was friendly and helpful. Most of all Captain Mark was not only very knowledgeable... More

Great way to learn about what goes on along the Norfolk waterfront. Relaxing and informative. It was a chilly day but nice and warm inside the cabin, comfortable seating and refreshments available.

The captain was very skilled and the tour was very enjoyable even though we were there on a somewhat cloudy and cool day. The crew were... More
