Take a Cruise

Make your own history aboard one of our cruises.

All evening cruises are approximately 90 minutes long and begin boarding at 6 p.m. All guests must check in at the Visitor Center between 5:30 and 5:45.  Cruise tickets are released for sale seven days before the scheduled cruise so that we can try to avoid weather-related cancellations. Please see below for details.

Our cruises will begin later this season. Subscribe to our newsletter below to receive updates on when cruise tickets will be available. 

All guests must check in for their cruise at the Visitor Center at least 15 minutes before boarding begins.

Five minutes before boarding begins, any guests who have not checked in will be considered “no shows” and their tickets will be released for resale. Refunds will not be issued.

Craft Beer Cruises

Craft Beer Cruises will be offered on Friday evenings. Enjoy cruising on the Potomac while learning about some of Port City Brewing’s craft beers. A flight of three beers will be offered to our guests while one of PCB’s expert staff members explains how they’re brewed and what makes them unique. Enjoy a bottle of your favorite brew for free and buy more if you like. Additional beverage choices also available, but this cruise is only for those over 21.

Adult Pirate Cruises

Adult Pirate Cruises will be scheduled on occasional Saturday evenings. Get in the spirit of things by wearing pirate garb, singing chanteys, and sampling rum! After setting sail, a tasting expert will share the history and differences among a variety of Caribbean and local rums. Bartenders will be available once you choose your favorite! Learn about the pirates of the Chesapeake and enjoy some swashbuckling music. All pirates must be over 21, please!

Evening Cruises

Looking for a more serene option? Relax and enjoy an Evening Cruise on occasional Saturday evenings. Feel rejuvenated as you take in the scenery with a glass in hand and a friend by your side. Mellow music will play while wind and waves carry you away from everyday life. A selection of beverages will be available for purchase along with light snacks.

Family Pirate Cruises

Have children? Join us for the Family Pirate Cruise on Saturday mornings! Our crew will entertain your little buccaneers with songs, games, and a little cutlass training, too. This could come in handy if a mutiny occurs and the children have to save Captain John! Kids will walk away with a big smile and a small pile of treasure.
