My wife and I took the 7.5 hour bay cruise from Annapolis, MD to St. Michael's, MD. Overall, it was a great trip! The ship is very clean, the crew was great, great views and we didn't feel crowded on the ship with the other 102 that were with us. As we were talking about this trip after we got... More

We are a travel loving family of three. Annapolis is a favorite destination especially when family is visiting the DC area as in this case for our Day on the Bay. This cruise to St. Michael's, while lovely, is not geared with children in mind. Our eight-year old, thankfully, was able to keep himself fairly entertained, but I noticed that... More

We visited Baltimore for the Star Spangled Spectacular event and booked two cruises with Watermark. The first was an afternoon cruise for the Blue Angels and the second was later that evening for the fireworks display over Fort McHenry…….both were fabulous! I cannot say enough about how pleased we were with Watermark. Both cruises from start to finish were great.... More

What a great day on the Chesapeake, seeing Lighthouses on the Bay. Great crew & great narration by a very knowledgeable commentator. Well worth the money!!

Fun and stressfree tour on the bay around Annapolis. Saw 3 lights and several other points of interest. Can not imagine changing a thing about the tour!

We picked up our 10:30 tour at the Visitor's Ctr on West Street. It was advertised as a 2 1/4 hour tour but I think ours was a little bit longer. Make sure you have CASH with you to pay for your ticket. The tour guide does not accept credit. Cost was $16/pp... a fair fare. The walk took us... More

Our group of 44 people enjoyed the walking tour led by Watermark costumed guides. Very informative. Annapolis State Capitol and U S Naval Academy yard. Later we enjoyed a 40-minute Annapolis Harbor cruise. Watermark does a great job!

Went out for the Harbor cruise and it was enjoyable experience and a great way to see the Inner Harbor. The second cruise I went on was the Fireworks cruise for the 200th of the firing on Fort McHenry. What can one say they gave us a great view!

We took a walking tour of Annapolis and the Naval Academy with Richard. He was funny and engaging and knew more facts and history than I can imagine one human could retain! It was such a fun experience and a great way to learn more and see more of Annapolis. I would highly recommend this tour especially with Richard as... More

I am the local Area Director for AuPairCare in Anne Arundel County. For the past 3 years, I've brought my group of au pairs on your cruises. It's a wonderful way to see the Chesapeake Bay, Naval Academy and Bay Bridge. I had 25 au pairs (from 7 countries - China, Japan, Colombia, Brazil, Germany, El Salvador and Spain) and... More
