We loved this 40 minute narrated cruise, only $15, of the areas along the US Naval Academy and the Harbor out to the Bay Bridges. Great views, very informative and interesting. Just long enough to prevent boredom. This is a best buy for seeing Annapolis and everything was top notch. There is a bathroom on the boat and snacks/ drinks... More

The tour guide met us in the lobby of the Visitor Center and began promptly on schedule. He was knowledgeable and gave "insider" information about Maryland in general and Annapolis in particular. There were about a dozen in the group, making it easy to ask questions as desired. The most memorable part for us was the Naval Academy portion of... More

We enjoyed the harbor cruise, although there wasn't much to see. But the captain was friendly and pointed out several things. Fun to see the Naval Academy from the water.

I grew up around Annapolis but had never done this tour - the "Tricorns and Tennis Shoe" tour. Our tour guide - dressed in admittedly not quite accurate period clothing - was excellent. Mistress Laura took us all around the perimeter of the Naval Academy, onto St. John's College campus and to each of the 4 houses of the Maryland... More

Alice, who is phenomenally well-read, did a fantastic job of telling us about the state capitol and the Naval Academy, and various Annapolis homes and institutions. Since it was in the 20s outside, we were her only two guests on the tour, so we got a wonderfully personalized experience. She was dressed in historic garb, which we found quite impressive... More

We took the 40 minute tour of the harbor. We had no reservations and purchased tickets about 20 minutes before the cruise where they fill up the boats. Judging from the length of the line, I was concerned that we would not make the cruise, but it turned out fine. The boat ride itself was relaxing with benches to sit... More

On a gorgeous sunny Sunday morning , it was a lovely thing to do, take a boat up the bay for an hour and a half. My only disappointment was the guide was a recording and not live, and the PA speaker at the rear was not working properly , so was hard to hear. Still very well worth it.

My wife and I took the bay cruise from Annapolis to St. Michael's Island. The trip was very pleasant! The ship was clean and comfortable. The crew was extremely friendly and courteous, we were late and they held the boat for us. Thank you. We had great weather and a really smooth ride. To help keep expenses down you might... More

This was our second tour (we did it last year too) and it was a great time. The tour guides dressed in period clothing were great. We loved the stories along the walking tour and the little stop at the WIlliam Paca House was great! I loved spending the evening walking around Annapolis.
