Excellent crew and THE BEST sight-seeing/over-view of the largest Naval base in the world...headquarters of the Atlantic Fleet!!! One of the most detailed (water) views of Norfolk, Virginia!! Do not miss this opportunity! Bar, bathrooms, AC within enclosed portion of this boat.

This is worth your time and money to get up close to the Government's Naval Playground! Great narration from the captain pointing out different Destroyers and Carriers along the way... you will not be disappointed in taking the time.

Although we stayed on the naval base and were able to get close to the vessels, we were not able to get any information at the docks. The cruise was very, very informative . We highly recommend it

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.
