East Coast Inland Passage

The East Coast of America is unique and diverse, and the intracoastal waterway is a great way to experience the regional changes and history that formed our nation. From the horse-drawn carriages in Beaufort, to the cobblestone streets of Charleston, the Wright Brothers’ great flying machine in Kitty Hawk, and the 18th century battlefields on St. Simons Island – the history of America will unveil itself before your eyes on this cruise!
