Very good tour, but not what we expected. About 75% was at the US Naval Academy. Very interesting but too much time was spent there. We really did not need to go see their swimming pool. About 20% was at the State Capitol, which was very good. Only about 5% was about the town of Annapolis, which was much less... More

We really enjoyed the scenery and the boat ride along the Severn River. We sat at the front of the boat and had a great time laughing and enjoying others on the ride on a beautiful August day (and there is a bar). It was well worth the money we would definitely do it again. Great staff too!

My husband and I absolutely loved our City Lights Cruise! The views were absolutely beautiful and the captain was hilarious. Can't wait to ride again!

Did the Severn River cruise which was a serene visual treat. Also, went on the Thomas Point Lighthouse cruise which traveled out in the bay to the anchored lighthouse in open water. Both cruises were 90 minutes. There are other cruises some just 40 minutes and some longer.You leave from docks in downtown historic Annapolis. Both tours went passed the... More

The 2 1/2 hour walking tour is $18 and WELL worth it! I hope you get Squire Doug. He is charming, we'll informed, and obviously loves giving tours. Don't forget to tip!! He took us everywhere we expected, and then some. We learned more about the history of the town and it's famous and infamous residents than we expected. Loved... More

I have taken the cruise from Annapolis to St. Michaels annually for the past 5 or 6 years and have never had a bad experience. In fact, it is one of the nicest things to do in the Annapolis area. The crew is outstanding. They are always pleasant and helpful. The boat is clean and comfortable. This is something that... More

Me and my friend were really interested in taking this tour because you learn history of Annapolis and some ghost stories of the area. Our tour guide was good but I think we were expecting a bit more "thrills and chills" theatrics and less long winded story telling. There were quite a few points of the tour and stories that...

The tour was a first rate experience. The crew was professional and dedicated to making the experience an enjoyable one. The lighthouse tour was very informative and provided lots of opportunities to take pictures on the scenic Bay. We've taken other Watermark cruises including the cruise to St. Michaels (twice!). They are always well done and very pleasant and enjoyable... More

Our group joined other guests watching last week's Wednesday night sailboat races. We had great weather (including cool cloud formations and rainbows!), but the best part was the running commentary from the boat's captain, so which helped us know more about what was happening. We enjoyed the food and drink, as well. ;-) It was my first time to take... More

This 90 minute cruise along the Severn River was lovely with a meaningful historic and current narration of the River and Annapolis Harbor. The boat was immaculately clean and the staff were courteous and gracious at all times.
