With the Yorktown Sailing Cruises, you’ll have the chance to experience travel on the high seas as it was over 300 years ago – aboard a tall ship! You’ll sail aboard the Schooner Alliance, much like the ship Capt. John Smith used when trading with the Powhatan Indians. The journey will take you past the Yorktown Battlefield, Victory Monument, the banks of the river, and more as you experience the culture and history of America while simultaneously seeing the beautiful sites of the Williamsburg area. If you are lucky, the crew will let you lend a hand at setting sail.
