“See Annapolis by Water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

Had a lovely time aboard the Harbor Queen run by Watermark Cruises. Clean and comfortable boat and reasonably priced for the 40 min. tour. Narration was clear and informative. Good introduction to the city. Our dog was welcome aboard.

“Great day with Watermark!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

Just spent a delightful afternoon aboard a Watermark ship, the Harbor Queen, in the Annapolis Harbor. The narrated tour was very informative. Our group of 30 seniors all enjoyed the ride. Watermark staff was both professional and friendly. We also participated in a Watermark docent led walking tour of Annapolis, which was also very well received. I would highly recommend both Watermark tours and harbor cruises. Thanks to Jennifer DeLancy with Watermark for attending to all the details to make our day in Annapolis a great experience!!

This is a nice thing to do if you're down in the harbor. The pricing was reasonable, the ship was clean, and the tour ran on time. Recommended!

“Sailboat Race Cruise Is A Winner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

The Annapolis Yacht Club holds sailboat races on Wednesdays during the summer. Watermark Tours is offering cruises to see the action from the water. The Harbor Queen was a perfect place to photograph the race. The captain took us out close to the starting line to see the different classes of sailboats lined up for the start of their races. He really explained the race and the different types of sailboats well. I enjoyed his commentary and was better able to appreciate the skill involved. I had never seen the races before and was delighted by the different groups of sailboats lined up with their brightly colored sails. Several had darker sails that glowed a metallic color when the sun shone on them. The captain told us they are made from Kevlar. Kevlar is a stiff fabric that doesn’t buckle and can give the sailors and edge over regular sails. He moved the Harbor Queen as the action moved to keep us close to the action. Being in the midst of things made it easy to get shots with the light behind and shining on the boats just by moving from one side of the boat to the other. As we came back into port we passes the Naval Academy. The captain had lots of interesting things to share about the Academy as well. I’ve done several tours with Watermark and have always enjoyed myself. I got lots of great shots of the sailboats and may just go back for the next one.

There were couples and families on the cruise as well as photographers. They served some food and drinks were available at the bar. It was a great way to spend a summer evening!

“The Point at Annapolis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

We invited our residents to Cruise aboard the Harbor Queen for the 45 minute narrated tour. We had 70 people in our group and it was absolutely fantastic! I want to thank Jennifer DeLancy our tour coordinator for putting this together for me at the last minute. The Captain and crew members including the ones at the pier were very kind,courteous,professional and always had a warm, welcoming smile from our first steps on board. We would highly reccomend this tour or any other Watermark Cruise or Tour they are Incredible
