Very well narrated tour of the harbor and the US Naval Academy from the water. Tour lasts about 40 minutes and you can really learn a lot. Get a different perspective for taking your photos. Comfortable ship with open air and enclosed areas for whatever the weather.

My husband and I spent part of my 50th birthday aboard the Raven sailing out of Baltimore. From the beginning meeting Dave Welborn at the dock to the crazy Captain Dean Dean the dancing machine, the crew was as nice and friendly as could be. The captaion even gave me the honor of sounding the horn and the crew even... More

Reasonably priced and great sceneries on the way.. Covers all the landmarks from the water. A very popular attraction and a great way to see this historical town, harbor and all the pretty historic sailing ships.

I led a group of 17 to join a special cruise with Watermark on Oct. 17th to see the start of the 2013 Chesapeake Schooner Race to Norfolk VA. No one in our group was a sailor but I can speak for all 17 of us that we had a simply magnificent time watching the action. The Captain told us... More

The Watermark Tours sponsored by Historic Annapolis, Inc. are great. We recently went on the evening ghost tour and loved the guide Kim who was dressed in colonial garb and kept up her persona throughout the tour as an indentured servant even when talking about current happenings. The small group roamed the side streets of the beautiful historic town, stopping... More

We took the 2.25 hour four century tour with Squire Richard. This was a fantastic tour. Richard was not only incredibly knowledgable about the history of the town, the churches, the government, and the Naval Academy, he was very funny and made the tour so much fun. I would recommend this tour to anyone and it was a great value... More

I have done several special event cruises with Watermark now and have been very pleased with all of them. The crew members have all been friendly and helpful. The captain's are really good at making sure you see what you go out to see and that no matter where you are on the boat you don't have to move to... More

Took the 1 hour national anthem cruise. It rained a bit, but not enough to send us inside the cabin. Cool views of the harbor all the way out to ft mchenry. They offer shorter 45 min cruises every hour, but I thin that ends by Columbus Day, so check the website. Crew was very friendly and welcoming.

Squire Richard took us for a walk through the haunted houses of downtown Annapolis. He told wonderful stories! I think I could sense the spirits at the Shiplap house. It was fun!
