Want to get a lay of the land from the water? Then you’ll want to set sail aboard Norfolk’s own Tall Sailing Ship, The American Rover. This three-masted topsail schooner with its familiar red “tan bark” sails has been a signature site along the Elizabeth River and Hampton Roads Harbor since 1986, offering 1 ½ and 2 hour narrated Harbor or Sunset Cruises, from April through October. Guests embark from Waterside Marina on the Downtown Norfolk Harbor and once on board, can choose to hoist a sail with the crew, take a turn at the helm or just sit back and enjoy the scenic view. If you’re looking for a unique venue to host a private party or special event, The American Rover will be glad to welcome your guests aboard. The ship offers a complete line of catering, bar service and entertainment. With ample room topside and two smartly appointed climate-controlled lounges below decks, the American Rover assures plenty of space for your guests to move around and mingle. What’s more, the ship’s experienced staff that will see to their every need. Whether you’re in Norfolk for business or pleasure, be sure to make the American Rover part of your adventure!
