Iva W. Buyboat, the Floating Bed & Breakfast

Take A Step Back In Time:
Come cruise with us on Iva W., a 60ft. wooden freighter from the Chesapeake Bay that has been converted to travel the remote natural wonders of our beautiful coastal waters. Her 16ft. beam and 40 tons of spuce heart pine made her stable and comfortable for your visit to wilderness areas far from the noise and hustle of our cities.
