I would definitely recommend this cruise for visitors and locals alike. The ship is comfortable (sit outside if the weather is nice), the staff is professional and helpful, and the tour is informative. So fun to see the big ships from a different perspective -...More

Very informative, enjoyed the cruise viewing the ships which protect us. Also enjoyed touring the Wisconsin. Would do it again, children need to see it to see the huge cargo ships which ship out and bring goods here and abroad.

Boat was very nice. Air conditioned if didn’t want to sit up top. Plenty of cold drinks of all kinds to include alcohol. Snacks etc. Great 2 hr cruise. Well worth it if you have the time

If you have any interest in battleships, you MUST take this two hour cruise around the Norfolk and Portsmouth Naval Stations! The cruise captain was extremely informative, and the trip was a lovely way to see the area around Hampton Roads.
