Skipjack Stanley Norman Trips

For most Chesapeake Bay fans, the word "skipjack" brings to mind romantic images of a Bay tradition. For watermen, the word means hard work and a long day of oyster dredging on the Bay. For trip participants on the Stanley Norman, the skipjack experience will involve a little of each! While aboard, you'll be invited to help hoist the sails or simply enjoy the view! You will leave with a better understanding of oysters and their role in keeping the Bay clean as well as what CBF is doing to restore the oyster stocks in order to save the Bay.

Hampton Roads Boat Trips

Start with a tour of CBF's award winning green building, the Brock Environmental Center, along the shores of the Lynnhaven River. Then venture aboard the Jenny S to explore the surrounding waterways. CBF's staff will discuss the current state of the Bay and its tributaries and we'll examine what is living in this diverse and dynamic part of the Chesapeake Bay. This is a hands-on learning experience that you won't soon forget.

  • There are currently no trips scheduled.

 

INCLEMENT WEATHER AND REFUND POLICY: In the event of light rain, trips will still run. However, should heavy rain, thunderstorms, or other severe weather conditions arise, the trip will be cancelled.
