SO WORTH IT! BOOK THE TOUR!
Captin Tom and his 1st mate were spectacular! We were lucky to have a beautiful day on the water and really enjoyed the tour! You learn a lot of interesting facts & hear cool stories. The views from the water are great, especially of Fort McHenry! Water & other beverages were available during the trip, seats were comfortable, we had a safe & smooth ride the entire time!

I can't think of a better way to pass 90 minutes of your time!!! Captain Tom kept us entertained with fascinating stories about Baltimore's history - most of which were based on the places we were sailing past. "First Mate" Lindsay was friendly and professional, and lots of fun to be around. We just a great time all around. So, if you enjoy friendly folks, storytelling and being out on the water - this is the tour for you!!!

Great overview of the history of the harbor! Captain Tom was informative and our deck hand, Lindsey, was very friendly.
We enjoyed the cruise and had a very good experience with the crew. We learned a lot about places along the harbor and its history. A couple of minor suggestions. Stop playing music while the captain is speaking. Sometimes it made it hard to hear even though the music was not very loud. Drinks were provided but kind of hot. There was a bag of ice in the cooler but drinks were not cooled down. One of the best things was the small group and individual attention provided. Highly recommend!

Beautiful Day to go Sailing
We thoroughly enjoyed our sail around Baltimore Harbor. Captain Tom shared with us the nautical history of the Bay as we sailed. He also shared some current news about various businesses around the Harbor. The weather was perfect for sailing. I definitely recommend Captain Tom!

Set Sail for a date
We had a fabulous time on the sailboat, with a perfect calm weather morning! I scheduled the sailing tour to celebrate my birthday in Baltimore. Captain Tom & Lindsey were very friendly. We kept a steady pace, and heard interesting history about the places we sailed by! It was the perfect length trip, and just so relaxing.

Perfect spring morning
We had an amazing morning with Captain Tom. I thought it would be the perfect way to spend a lovely morning on the water with out of town family, but ended up loving it for myself! I’ve lived in Baltimore 23 years and still learned something new from the captain’s informative historical narrative. Captain Tom was professional, engaging, and an easygoing expert of his craft. I highly, highly recommend this tour for families.

Excellent narration by Nick and Captain Amanda. We live in MD and enjoyed getting out in the water to see/hear about past/present in Baltimore’s HUGE harbor. Everything was Covid compliant which was very reassuring.

The narrative was very good. The tour of the harbor was great. As a long time Baltimore resident, I even learned a few things about the harbor. I wish we had gone to Canton and sen Fort McHenry and the port and the Bay.
