An HEAV-Sponsored Event
Start out this season with a homeschool field trip you family will never forget! American Rover Sailing Ship offers a 90-minute sailing adventure on the smooth waters of the Elizabeth River. Children will have a chance to set the sails, take a turn at the helm, hear about the history of ships and sailing and learn to tie some basic knots the cruise use daily.
The captain will also point out some of the highlights in the harbor, such as the navy ships, ship yards, container terminals, The Battleship Wisconsin, Old Fort Norfolk, and more.
The cruise departs from Waterside Marina in Downtown Norfolk.
