Sailors learn to be experts at knot tying, from securing the vessel with a tight anchor hitch to securing the captain after he succumbs to madness and tries to eat his own hook hand. This Groupon is a mutinous bounty.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $20 for a two-hour harbor cruise for two (up to a $40 value)
  • $25 for a two-hour sunset cruise for two (up to a $50 value)

During the two-hour harbor cruise, guests board the 135-foot American Rover and sail out into Norfolk Harbor. The captain narrates the trip and highlights sights such as the Coast Guard station, Navy ships, and the occasional dolphin. Meanwhile, passengers can help out with the sails, take a turn at the helm, or just relax.

The two-hour sunset cruise creates a more romantic ambiance. After the captain narrates a short tour of the Elizabeth River, onboard musicians play smooth tunes. Cruises will set sail again in April; see the schedule for both trips here. Both cruises make for a great holiday gift.

American Rover

It's been more than 25 years since American Rover raised its majestic red sails and floated out on its first narrated tour. From April to October of each year, the 135-foot schooner still journeys across the smooth waters of Hampton Roads Harbor and the Elizabeth River. As its flags ripple in the wind, the three-masted sailboat explores sights such as Old Fort Norfolk and the battleship Wisconsin. Its captain narrates each of these excursions and invites guests to take turns at the helm and man the sails.

At night, American Rover transforms into a floating party. Twinkling harbor lights, live musicians, and a fully stocked bar set the mood for birthday celebrations or everyday outings. Meanwhile, climate-controlled lounges hide passengers who have an awkward history with the man in the moon.
