About Rappahannock River Cruises
Virginia's Rappahannock River is full of adventure,
history, and excitement. It all comes alive for you
in a day you'll always remember, aboard the cruise boat
The narrated cruise departs Hoskins Creek at Tappahannock
at 10 A.M. You'll want to bring your binoculars, so
you can get a close-up look at our rare, magnificent
national symbol, the bald
eagle. These magnificent birds nest in the trees
and cliffs beside the Rappahannock.
There are about 50 year round resident
eagles, with another 40 or so migratory bird that
come and go all year round. Some of the birds you will
see come to fish the waters of the Rappahannock, but
nest as far as 50 miles away. You'll also want to see
the many species of waterfowl
and the points of interest as you enjoy a relaxing cruise
eighteen miles upriver. Where the boat will dock, and
you will escorted to one of Virginia’s
top wineries, Ingleside Plantation.
Once at Ingleside, you can enjoy a buffet style lunch
or take your own picnic to enjoy in the courtyard. After
lunch, you are given a tour of the winery, where you
can see the wine making process first hand. But, the
real treat of any winery, is of course is the wine.
A tasting of some of the premier wines that Ingleside
has to offer follows the tour. The winery also boasts
one of most unique gifts shops in the area. When you
visit Ingleside via the Capt.
Thomas you also can benefit from special discount
pricing when you purchase wine.
Afterwards, enjoy a relaxing cruise back down the Rappahannock
River; while you enjoy your glass of wine take all of
the scenery that the river has to offer.
