Miss Hampton II Harbor Cruises Extends Season Through November 11
The Miss Hampton II Harbor Cruises has extended its 2018 season through November 11. This double-decked tour boat, based in downtown Hampton, offers daily narrated cruises of the Hampton Roads harbor and Chesapeake Bay.
The three-hour harbor tour departs from the historic downtown Hampton waterfront (710 Settlers Landing Road, Hampton, VA 23669) and proceeds out the Hampton River, passing Hampton University and Blackbeard’s Point, where the notorious pirate’s head was displayed on a pike after his capture off the coast of the Outer Banks.
Entering the Hampton Roads harbor, guests will sail the waters of Captain John Smith and the First Settlers.
The tour continues past historic Fort Monroe and the Old Point Comfort Lighthouse, the oldest continuously operating lighthouse in America.
After an awe-inspiring view of the magnificent Chesapeake Bay the cruise will stop (weather permitting) for a 30-minute guided walking tour of the Civil War island fortress, Fort Wool.
The highlight of the entire harbor tour is an in-depth view of the massive warships at the world’s largest naval instillation, the Norfolk Naval Base, home to aircraft carriers, nuclear-powered submarines, and various types of support ships.
The return trip to Hampton features a captivating narrative of the famous Battle of the Ironclads: the Monitor and the Merrimac!
