The Captain was very knowledgeable!!! Staff was very friendly; I only wish that we got the same information heading back in so that everyone sitting on the opposite side would know the details . Overall, I really enjoyed the tour!!

The one thing I would ask be done differently is to wait until points of discussion were beside the boat so those sitting inside could follow the discussion. Would definitely do this again however.

Well worth the money. Excellent commentary by the Captain during the cruise. Extremely knowledgeable about Norfolk and the various classes of vessels docked at Navel Station Norfolk. Spacious clean boat with plenty of seating above deck and in the climate controlled main cabin.

It's based on the time of day and year, I would recommend calling them to confirm. However, you do not want to book too far in advance, since the weather could negatively impact the tour.
