- Cruise Locations
- Cruise Length
Our cruises vary in duration from 40 minutes up to 7.5 hours. Visit our Cruises page for information on all of our cruises and their durations. The only "destination cruise" we offer is our Day on the Bay to St. Michaels which travels from Annapolis to St. Michaels and back.
- Food and Beverage
Guests are welcome to bring a snack or sandwich onto the boat. However, beverages are not permitted. Light snacks, beverages and cocktails may be purchased on all of our cruises at our cash bar (we recommend having cash as credit cards are not typically available while cruising).
We do not do full dinner cruises. If you are interested in renting one of our vessels for a private dinner cruise, please visit Yacht Charters on the Bay for more information.
Our cruises will take place rain or shine. All cruises are subject to cancellation due to severe weather, lack or participation or mechanical breakdown.
All Watermark vessels are U.S. Coast Guard inspected and certified. They have emergency equipment including life jackets in the unlikely event they are needed. Guests who wish to wear a life jacket during the cruise are welcome to bring one.
Reservations are not required for most cruises. Walk-ups are always welcome.
Advance tickets for most Baltimore cruises are available online. Tickets for Baltimore cruises may also be purchased at the Baltimore Visitors Center or from the Watermark Ticket Kiosk located on the promenade of the Baltimore Inner Harbor and right in front of our boats on the Finger Piers.
