Your ticket includes complimentary admission to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum and a non-alcoholic beverage* and doughnut on the morning cruise to St. Michaels.

This Annapolis cruise takes guests across the Chesapeake Bay in luxury, not in Bay Bridge traffic. The quaint historic village of St. Michaels offers fresh seafood, boutique shopping and historic sites all within walking distance during your approximate 3-hours of leisure time on land. Lady Sarah, your vessel for the trip was designed specifically with this Chesapeake Bay cruise in mind. Enjoy a comfortable climate controlled lower deck and open top deck. This beautiful and relaxing cruise is the ultimate in Annapolis boat tours and the best, most fun way to get to the Eastern Shore. This cruise is pet friendly except for festival dates at the Maritime Museum.
