Yorktown Sailing Charters - Schooner Alliance

Ballard & Water Street
Yorktown, VA 23690
United States

Set Sail for Adventure aboard Yorktown's Schooner Alliance! You will return to the by-gone days of old sailing ships on our 2 hour sightseeing cruises. Our knowledgeable crew will harmonize past with present as you sail down the York River past the battlefield where our country won its independence. You may see dolphins or osprey, working watermen, or perhaps sail past a naval warship or submarine! You can lend a hand at setting sail, enjoy a beverage or snack from the ships' galley, or just listen to the sound of the wind as we glide along.

Private charters can be customized with catering and bar options.

For families with young kids try the Pirate Adventure Cruises (Memorial Day to Labor Day). During Captain Mayhem's School of Piracy the kids will set the sails, steer the ship, get tattooed and fire the cannon! This is our most kid-friendly cruise.
