Experience all the beauty of
Annapolis from the water

On this tour of the charming Annapolis harbor and surrounding waterways, you'll enjoy all the sights and sounds of the city, hearing both historical and personal stories about the city, its merchants, sailers, and watermen, and more.

There's a reason sailors from around the world rank Annapolis as their favorite port call––it's one of the prettiest seaside towns on the East Coast. We'll get close-up views of power boats, sail boats of all sizes, and even a yacht or two. You'll learn about the settlement of the Chesapeake Bay, Annapolis, and the adjacent rivers, and also hear the story of the "Annapolis Tea Party" in 1774!

Your tour guide, a native of Annapolis, boater, and sailor, will share personal adventures on the waters––capsizing in high winds, "skulling" on windless days, and evening races in the summer. As always, questions are welcome about whatever captures your interest.
