My wife and I booked the Baltimore Inner Harbor fireworks cruise for NYE 2017. The staff were courteous, energetic and friendly right from the get-go. The seating area was well laid out and there was a small dance floor with DJ booth at the front. Snacks aplenty and the eclectic crowd was definitely looking for a good time. The DJ... More

I booked this New Year's cruise as a surprise for my husband. The docking location was very convenient in Baltimore's Inner Harbor so after dinner in the city it was exciting to board in such a beautiful location. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful in getting everyone seated before departure. What we loved best was the number of guests... More

When we moved to Annapolis, we were looking for an activity to do outside with our dog and found that Watermark cruises are all pet friendly, so we gave it a try. We went on a 45-minute tour of the Naval Academy and the extended area. It was a great way to be on the water and learn a little... More

My wife and I and another couple went on the New Year's Cruise last evening. The makeup of the audience was approximately 20+ to 60+ - I'd say about evenly split. The seating was in general 6-8 people per table - met a nice couple that were getting married that evening. Had a nice time with them. Music and lighting... More

What a fun family thing to do! Nice little boat ride to see Christmas lights on the waterfront homes. The hot chocolate was hot and fantastic.

On Friday night, December 16, we took the Candlelight Stroll with Mistress Pat, ending up at the Hammond Harwood House which had been beautifully decorated for the season. It was wonderful! Mistress Pat was full of historical information with a Christmas slant. It was interesting and amusing. The tour was just the right length, and just the right pace. It... More

This walking tour was very disappointing. Honestly I think it was because of the guide more than about the company. But that said, there should be no room for error then, the guides should have a script to follow so as not to veer off into personal commentary that may be inappropriate. Our tour was led by an elderly gentleman.... More

My 4 1/2 year old daughter was greeted immediately by the friendly captain. The Christmas music was a nice touch and my daughter and I loved seeing all the Annapolis homes and docks decorated for the holidays. I would definitely do it again!
