Our bridge group had a very enjoyable afternoon sailing on the York River. The weather was perfect. It was also very informative by providing a historical background on the river’s formation and the impact of a meteor impact.

Our office was treated to a wonderful cruise on the Alliance. We had a great time and learned a lot about the ship and the surrounding area. I would definitely include this excursion while visiting Yorktown.

The husband and wife owners are very professional, well organised and excellent company. As very experienced sailors, we can be quite critical of tourist sunset cruises. But this one was a delight. Thoroughly recommended.

We took this cruise as a last minute thing on our vacation to Williamsburg. We had never been on a sail boat. The weather was great and enough wind to make it exciting. The crew was very pleasant and informative.
