Yorktown Sailing Cruises Photos (17)

With the Yorktown Sailing Charters 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 York 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. The Sunset Tour lasts about two hours. It is very family- friendly and great for all ages. 

The Alliance is a ship has seen many different waters in her lifetime. Built in Florida in 1995, she was a charter vessel in Maine and cruised around the Caribbean Islands before being purchased by the Yorktown Sailing Charters in 2005. Now, she is a daily charter vessel that cruises the York River. Aboard, there are four queen staterooms with their own bathrooms, two double cabins, and a Captain's cabin.

A perfect fit in combination with the other historic activities in Williamsburg and great as an addition to any Williamsburg VA vacation, experience the history of sailing with the Yorktown Sailing Charters.You may even see other fun things to do in Williamsburg while on the trip.
