Desoite the cold and windy weather, it was our 5th but best harbor cruise ever. The Narrator knew every freighter, warship, repair dock etc and explained it so colorful - you just did not want the cruise to end.

What an excellent way to get a great view of the Atlantic fleet. We saw two aircraft carriers and any other ships. Great narration and a pleasant stop at the fort. Hearty recommendation.

My family and I took several Carrie B tours while living in Hampton Roads. All were excellent, this is the best way to view the fleet at the Norfolk Naval Base as close as possible from the river. Great way to see Norfolk from the water!

We initially signed up for the cruise to "kill some time" but were all intrigued by the narration and history of the Captain. Also did not hurt they served beer and snacks!

Loved the Carrie B, but although it is still operating (a new boat, too), it is now charter.One must charter the entire boat and it looks fabulous on their website, but no longer can one just go down to the dock and get on for a tour of this very interesting Hampton Roads area. I definitely will consider using it... More

We saw Naval Ships, Submarines,huge Cargo ships, barges and many other neat things. It was educational for our son too. He definitely... More

I took my family on the Carrie B this past weekend. It was a great trip! Captain Mark allowed us to go into the pilot-house where he was driving the boat. His narration was incredible! It seemed as if he knew everything about all the ships that we saw. A great trip for the entire family. I would recommend to... More
