Set sail with a tradition of excellence aboard the American Rover - Cruising since 1986. The American Rover’s red “tan bark” sails have been one of the signature sights of the Hampton Roads area. Cruises depart from Waterside in the heart of Downtown Norfolk, Virginia. April through October she sails the smooth waters of the Elizabeth River and Hampton Roads Harbor on daily 1 ½ and 2 Hour Narrated Harbor and Sunset Cruises. On board guests can lend a hand with the sails, take a turn at the helm or just sit back, relax and enjoy the experience. As one of the area’s most popular venues for private parties we have hosted Corporate Events, Weddings, Rehearsal Dinners, Reunions, Birthday Bashes, Promotions, Retirements, and any event that deserves to be memorable. A complete line of catering, bar service and entertainment is available.
