Our cruise took us out into the harbor close to Fort McHenry. We had a great view of the Blue Angels demonstration. Our captain and others provided a guided tour of the harbor and of the demonstration. The crew re-positioned the boat a couple of times to improve our view. The crew was friendly and accommodating.

The weather in Baltimore for Fleet Week 2016 was perfect, and the Watermark Cruise to enjoy the airshow from the water was great. There were a good amount of good viewing positions to see the airshow from the boat and even a bar with snacks and drinks downstairs. Special touches incorporate the captains skill and awareness of the show to... More

I booked the Walking Tour for my day in Annapolis Maryland with my oldest Son. This was the best decision! The tour was the best way to get a taste of what Annapolis has to offer. Our guide was an older gentleman who was very knowledgeable and entertaining. I definately recommend this tour!!

Enjoyable evening with an in-character tour guide. Great blend of Annapolis history and mysterious local events. A delightful way to spend a mild October evening, complete with a full Hunter's moon! Our group included adults and school children. Highly recommend.

This was a fun tour with interesting "facts" about the ghosts of Annapolis. The guide was very informative, and I, my daughter and 16-yr old granddaughter enjoyed it. The only suggestion for improvement I would make is that some other identifying symbol be used other than the flashing balls. They were very distracting.

Thank you for a wonderful experience! The event itself was awesome! The ship's Captain and crew went out of their way to ensure an exciting tour, with the best views, taking every measure of allowable footage of water space that the Harbor would allow closest to the action than every other passenger vessel. The staff even extended the tour beyond... More

Watermark cruises came to my rescue during my recent birthday trip to Annapolis. I really wanted to take a boat trip on my birthday, but many companies cancelled their trips due to the local boat show. I tried for some time before I stumbled upon Watermark. I took the 40 minute narrated trip and while I really wanted a sailing... More
