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!

On December 2, we took the Candlelight Stroll throughout old Annapolis. Beginning at the waterfront, the tour guides lead a 1.5 hour trip around the downtown area up to the State House and on to Hammond-Harwood House where we had a house tour also. The tour guides was well informed and provided interesting insights regarding the history and culture of... More

I've written about Watermark in the past, but since that time I've enjoyed several more of their tours, so I wanted to write again. We attended the Blue Angels practice performance in May. They perform every year during the Naval Academy Commissioning Week. The practice performance is exactly the same as the formal show, so a great way to beat... More

Watermark is a great group of people! This was our 2nd trip with them to St. Michael's and both times were wonderful trips. The crew is very friendly and accommodating to whatever you may need to make the trip more enjoyable. Even warn you when there is a large wake coming that will rock the boat (or splash you if...

Seeing the area from the water gives a different perspective. Watermark has a variety of different tours from a short spin around the harbor and river to a longer cruise across the Chesapeake Bay to places such as the historic town of St. Michaels and sea food restaurants, a good day trip. Also has great opportuinities for corporate or group... More

The tour was well done. We enjoyed learning about the history of Annapolis. The tour covered the main historical sites within the city. We enjoyed the visit into U.S. Naval Academy.

Our cruise took us out into the harbor close to Fort McHenry. We had a great view of the Blue Angels demonstration. Our captain and others provided a guided tour of the harbor and of the demonstration. The crew re-positioned the boat a couple of times to improve our view. The crew was friendly and accommodating.

The weather in Baltimore for Fleet Week 2016 was perfect, and the Watermark Cruise to enjoy the airshow from the water was great. There were a good amount of good viewing positions to see the airshow from the boat and even a bar with snacks and drinks downstairs. Special touches incorporate the captains skill and awareness of the show to... More
