Bay Lighthouse Cruise
Jul 22, 2014 by: rmnovak from maryland
I took the Bay Lighthouse cruise for my mothers bday this past July and I enjoyed it. I live in Baltimore and it was easy to drive to annapolis park discounted at the PARK PLACE GARAGE> watermark gives you a voucher to park for $2 alll day ( others are 10 - 20 $) ThentheFREE TROLLY picks you up right out side of the garage whcih is great since my mother has difficulty walking. we were upgraded to a nicer ship with AC due to a group bookig of older people. I was one of the youngest on board (35) but I thoroughly enjoyed the tour content. We sat on the upper deck outside and it was very pleasent. The tour was narrated by a WICKIE or lighthouse keeper so we got alot of info! my only complaint was that when he wasnt talking there couldve been some light music?? The cruise was 3 hours and you pack a light lunch which was fine . There are 2 bars on board that were cash and a little pricey $7 a drink but staff was nice and it was fun. I got some great photos of the bay bridge and all 3 lights. I would do this tour again! Whos coming with me!?
Convenient Harbor Cruise
Jul 20, 2014 by: Fleishum from Gaithersburg, Maryland
I took my daughter to Annapolis for a quick tour of the state capital. While I had not planned specific events the Watermark cruise looked to be a viable option. We were able to walk right up and purchase tickets only minutes before departure. The cruise was relatively brief yet informative. Overall it was just an overall pleasant tour of the harbor while catching the sights of Annapolis, the Naval Academy, and the Bay Bridge. The cruise leaves on the hour and lasts 40 minutes so it's very manageable to do with young children. It is certainly worth the time.
Severn River Cruise
Jul 13, 2014 by: Bob S from Gambrills, Maryland
From the good humored and friendly repartee of the Skipper, Capt. Dean to the skilled and helpful members of the crew, the trip was made all the more enjoyable. The weather was perfect for a jaunt around the Annapolis skyline and the Naval Academy all the way to Round Bay and back, the view and the narrations of points of interest was superior. It would have been just as enjoyable in inclement weather I've lived in the area for years and sailed the area many times, and had never been on such a cruise. Skipper and crew were most professional, and Capt. Deans remarks evoked many smiles and laughs.The Skipper made sure some of the youngsters, including my grandson and a precious little 8 something year old girl got a stint at the helm.....with careful supervision I should add to any Coast Guard reviewer reading this. The trip was thoroughly enjoyable and memorable; well worth the modest cost. I highly recommend this sojourn

The inner harbor of Annapolis is really nice. We took the forty minute cruise and we were very pleased. The presentation was made by a recording and very easy to follow. The history was interesting about the Naval Academy and very well done. The trip was only fifteen dollars per person and well worth it. Try it you will like it.
Very satisfied customers!

We are from Los Angeles visiting family in the Annapolis area. The webpage for the 90-minute Severn River tour caught my wife's attention and we decided to take it - we're glad we did. We were assigned to Capt. Dean's boat and found it to be clean and comfortable. Once underway the Captain and crew went out of their way to create not only a memorable trip but a great experience. Capt. Dean was very engaging with the guests, especially the kids, and went out of his way to make them feel welcome. He even let several minors 'drive' the craft. Other crew members, including a young Marine named Dan, contributed to a wonderful experience. We really enjoyed our tour of the Severn and look forward to future visits and different tours. Thank you Dean, Dan, and all of the friendly and competent staff we encountered at Watermark. Hope to see you again soon. Bob
