We decided to take our pups on the SPCA Dog Days cruise... It was fantastic! The sailing was smooth..the weather perfect and an hour was just enough time. Yummy food and fun conversations (between dogs and humans)! We would definitely do this again!

There is so much to learn, use more than one tour guide. These guides are amazingly knowledgeable, because they are really history buffs who a thoroughly tested and trained current each season. They generally love good questions, so sharpen your sword on their knowledge.

Couldn't have been better! A beautiful day on the bay on a beautiful boat to a beautiful town! Okay, only thing that could have been better, maybe more time in town - it's a great place and the museum has tons of stuff to see. I could have used a few more hours! Crew was great, fresh, delicious donuts and... More

The vessel had a problem 2 minutes from leaving the dock. Had to re-dock and experienced a 45 minute delay in leaving. Upon arrival in St. Micheal's port, we were informed of a major generator problem that required the passengers be bused back to Annapolis. Three buses arrived with a total capacity of 132 passengers. Problem-we had 134 humans, strollers,... More

We are very sorry that this experience did not turn out as planned. We have over 40 years of making this trip from Annapolis to St. Michaels and back with very rare occurrences such as this. Safety is always paramount and the decision to provide bus service back to Annapolis was based on safety, our guests' itineraries, and on-board passenger... More

We went to Annapolis MD for a day of sight seeing and relaxation as well as to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had scheduled two different Cruises and jumped onto a third 40 minute tour at the last minute. All three were great --- all the crew members were very friendly, helpful and informative --- all three served adult beverages... More

We took the 40 minute tour with our cousin from Australia of the lower Severn, Annapolis Harbor and Chesapeake Bay. The staff are courteous and professional. The tour is well narrated and informative. It is worth the $15 adult ticket price as it provides one with a bit of history and good view of Annapolis, the Bay and the Naval... More

We recently did the 2 hour walking tour, and while it covered a lot of ground, we felt like we were having to constantly run to keep up with the tour guide. We had a rather large group mixed with both families and couples. By the end of the tour, the guide was generally walking a block ahead of the... More
