The Virginia Dare 19th century replica side wheeler cruise boat is a favorite lake icon. The two-story dining charter carries locals and guests on routes around the lake in true southern belle style. The flotilla has been showing passengers the best of Smith Mountain Lake’s attractive shoreline, exquisite homes, seasonal changes and tranquil nature scenes for more than 20 years.
The Virginia Dare is popular during the warm months, of course, voyaging themed cruises from May through October. In addition to these, the Virginia Dare offers special event cruises on Mothers Day, Fathers Day, July 4th and the annual charity Flotilla for Toys event, held in November.
Whether you call Smith Mountain Lake home or are looking for a perfect tourist activity here, the Virginia Dare is an experience you will not want to miss!
