This is a nice informative trip round the bay which lasts about 50 minutes. There is comfortable seating inside and outside and on the day we went they were mixing really classy margaritas for seven dollars. These were proper margaritas and not some horrible lemonadey thing like you would get on an English cruise! If you are going to Annapolis... More

This was a despicable rip off. The boat in the advertisement is NOT the boat that you board. The pictures that are used to show you what you will see while on board are pictures from "last year" as per our captain, when it apparently was amazing. They didn't do that this year though. This boat excursion was definitely worth... More

Judith, We are very disappointed to know you feel misled but are unsure which advertisement you are referring to. We were happy to participate again in Light City Baltimore by lighting our boat and offering a light themed cruise during the annual festival. Many of our guests shared positive feedback. It's important to us that all of our guests are... More

We took an Inner Harbor Cruise on April 1 as part of the Light City Baltimore event. It was very fun. I had a group of 15, while it was a chilly night, it was so lovely to see Light City and the harbor from the water. While I've done one of their cruises from Annapolis, I would still recommend...

Had a nice trip this past weekend out to Thomas Point Lighthouse on the Bay. All of the crew were friendly and helpful, and the lighthouse is pretty neat. There's a helpful narration going as you head through the harbor and near the lighthouse, though I do wish the speakers were a little louder on deck because it's hard to... More

Large high school group. Staff was accommodating and helpful. Recorded tour pointing out points of interest and​ history. Would do again. If it's cold, it will be colder and windy on the water.

Booked this cruise as part of the City Lights Baltimore festival. Great seeing the Lights from the water! Bartending was a little weak, but we enjoyed ourselves. Would recommend to a friend.

Our walking guide was fantastic, knowledgeable, and gave us a great tour of Annapolis. The tour was over two hours but so interesting that the time just flew by! The tour was fairly easy to walk and had limited stairs. I would highly recommend this - especially to other first time visitors.

This was a wonderful and most educational tour! The docent was in period dress and so knowledgeable and delightful - she loved what she did and it made it special for us. The tour covered early colonial history, including the State House and ended at the Naval Academy. A very small group - six
