There are sightseeing cruises and dinner cruises available out of Norfolk and Baltimore harbors. Or you can catch one of the ferries out to Tangier or Smith Island - you'll get to visit the islands and enjoy the trip out there. And American Cruise Line has small cruise ships that travel the Chesapeake Bay. See our Chesapeake Bay Cruises page for details.
