Pre-cruise activity would offer participants a trip to Tangier Island by ferry during the day on Sunday. Explore this unique slice of Elizabethan England, before it disappears into the bay.  Post-cruise activities include visiting historic Yorktown directly across the York River from Sarah's Creek and/or a visit to the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS).

We look forward to a fun time exploring this beautiful part of our beloved Bay and the camaraderie that is a hallmark of these events. Please mark your calendars and stay tuned for further details.  We hope to see you there!
