Fun, even on a cold, windy day!
Apr 19, 2014 by: Alison H from Lancaster, Pennsylvania
This trip should have been a disappointment on a cold, cloudy, windy day, but it was a highlight of our trip to Annapolis! The crew was so friendly and were constantly making sure everyone was comfortable. Ask them anything! You'll get a ton of information. The tour is automated (a cd over speakers), and there are great views on either deck. A full bar is available, as well as snacks for purchase. We opted for hot chocolate! I only wish the trip lasted longer! Can't say enough about the crew, they obviously know how to take care of their customers!
Great way to see the city

Very well narrated tour of the harbor and the US Naval Academy from the water. Tour lasts about 40 minutes and you can really learn a lot. Get a different perspective for taking your photos. Comfortable ship with open air and enclosed areas for whatever the weather.
Such a great crew!

My husband and I spent part of my 50th birthday aboard the Raven sailing out of Baltimore. From the beginning meeting Dave Welborn at the dock to the crazy Captain Dean Dean the dancing machine, the crew was as nice and friendly as could be. The captaion even gave me the honor of sounding the horn and the crew even sang happy birthday to me as we disembarked. Being a Baltimore native it had been a while since doing the tourist stuff but this trip made me proud to be from Charm City. I highly recommend this pleasant cruise at the inner harbor of Baltimore to everyone, local and tourist alike.
Great way for sightseeing

Reasonably priced and great sceneries on the way.. Covers all the landmarks from the water. A very popular attraction and a great way to see this historical town, harbor and all the pretty historic sailing ships.
Cruise to Watch the 2013 Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race
Oct 28, 2013 by: Barbara L from Gaithersburg
I led a group of 17 to join a special cruise with Watermark on Oct. 17th to see the start of the 2013 Chesapeake Schooner Race to Norfolk VA. No one in our group was a sailor but I can speak for all 17 of us that we had a simply magnificent time watching the action. The Captain told us all about the ships as they came along and about the race history. The boat we were on, Lady Sarah, hovered in what seemed like the middle of the action and there was so much room on our boat for everyone to see and take pictures from every angle, be it from the upper and lower deck, inside and outside and close up. All of the tables inside gave a perfect place for us to eat our lunches but we all "ate fast" because we didn't want to miss a thing! Our group said the experience was stupendous and we might just go again next year. Two years ago we as a group took the Watermark tour of the lighthouses and next year we'll do the cruise to St. Michaels (and maybe the Schooner Race again). I had top notch service from the Watermark staff in setting up our tour and there wasn't even the tiniest glitch along the way. Everyone was so cooperative. Staff boarding the ship and handling onboard service were very, very friendly and knowledgeable. A super experience - I wouldn't change a thing!
