Norfolk, VA is a friendly, modern port city nestled where the Chesapeake Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean. It is home to the world’s largest naval station, one of the East Coast’s largest ports, and with rivers, creeks and beaches all around, it should come as no surprise that water is part of our life.

Kayaking, sailing, fishing, crabbing, swimming, harbor cruising - activities in, on and around the water are endless here in the heart of the Virginia waterfront!

Sail on a majestic tall ship. Explore the Power of the Sea at Nauticus and The Hampton Roads Naval Museum, or aboard the Battleship Wisconsin.

Enjoy a harbor tour, a sunset dinner cruise, a paddlewheel ferry ride, a Naval base tour, or a day at the beach.


Norfolk’s Cruise Port is an important hub for cruise travel. Managed and operated by Cruise Norfolk, the city’s sophisticated, 80,000-square foot cruise terminal is one of the largest domestic cruise ports in the country and is conveniently located in downtown Norfolk in close proximity to shopping, dining, attractions and cultural venues.
