Bay Lighthouses Cruises
Bay Lighthouses Cruise
See Thomas Point Lighthouse, Sandy Shoal and Baltimore Harbor Light on Watermark’s award winning Bay Lighthouses Cruise. Join us for 3 hours exploring these treasures of the Chesapeake Bay aboard our well maintained vessel.
Hop aboard for a beautiful Annapolis cruise that includes three Chesapeake Bay Lighthouses and a spectacular view of the lovely waterfront. Live (and entertaining) narration is given by our costumed Lighthouse keeper. This Chesapeake Bay tour is for lighthouse enthusiasts seeking lighthouse tours and those who simply enjoy a nice time on the water alike. The views are picturesque and the cruising vessel is comfortable and climate controlled. Each Chesapeake lighthouse is unique and you’ll enjoy getting a close look and learning about each during this quintessential Annapolis boat tour.
Pass under the twin spans of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge – a unique and stunning experience – and cruise by Sandy Point Shoal, Baltimore Harbor, and Thomas Point lighthouses. During your Chesapeake Bay Cruise and into the history of these three historic Chesapeake Bay lighthouses, our characterization of a turn of the century lighthouse keeper will keep guests entertained and engaged throughout the duration of the trip. Peppered with humor, anecdotes, tales of famous keepers and even some stories from land, our lighthouse tour promises not only a memorable cruise but a journey into past, present and future as well. This is a fun and distinctive activity when planning what to do in Annapolis.
We suggest guests bring a bagged lunch on the cruise. No beverages please. Full cash bar on board.
