You know it is almost Spring when the Harbor Queen is back at City Dock

Watermark® has launched their 2019 season of daily walking tours kick this weekend on March 16th. Colonial tour guides are back on the streets leading walking tours every day at 10:30 am and 1:30 pm. Annapolis’ iconic Harbor Queen and Miss Anne Spa Creek Tours return to City Dock next Saturday, March 23rd. The familiar sound of her horn will surely help welcome Spring to Annapolis. Watermark offers many fun ways to experience the Chesapeake Bay region every single day now through the Fall. In the coming weeks, 90-minute cruises will start running on weekends and Historic Ghost Walk will be back to spooking guests after dusk. In Baltimore, the 2019 season begins on April 6th.

“At Watermark, we are happy to see the ice has melted away from the Harbor making way for Harbor Queen to return to her spot at City Dock. We’re finding everyone is ready to have some fun outside.” said Watermark Owner and President Debbie Gosselin. “All of Annapolis’ favorites are back plus we’ve added some new special events to the schedule this year.”

The first Special Event of the year, Cruise to the WineFest at St. Michaels takes place April 27th and 28th; with a new option to cruise to WineFest and return with Live Music from Pressing Strings. Longer cruises including Bay Lighthouses Cruises and Day on the Bay to St. Michaels start in May. Regular Water Taxi service begins in May. Watermark is debuting more special events and music cruises than ever in 2019; with a Cinco De Mayo cruise on May 4th featuring live music from Dublin 5 already for sale. More experiences and unforgettable journeys are available for pre-sale on Watermark’s websites.

Past Watermark guest “phuniegerl” wrote on TripAdvisor, “We jumped on one of Watermark’s 40-minute Bay cruises leaving downtown Annapolis and circling the bay, passing the Naval Academy. This was a wonderfully relaxing 40 minutes, with the weather completely cooperating with us. We had done the walking tour prior to this, so this gave our feet some welcomed rest. Various points of interest are pointed out and the crew is friendly and helpful. The cruise leaves every hour, on the hour, and you really don’t have to pre-book it. You can just walk up and buy tickets. We would do it again.”

Past guest “Sharon R” wrote on TripAdvisor, “If this is your first time in Annapolis or 20th time, take this walking tour and learn SO much more about the town and colonial life. In the fast-paced 2 1/4 hour tour, you will visit important spots and be guided by a highly trained, highly enthusiastic guide that LOVES what they do and is so eager to bring history to life. Mistress Leslie was fabulous- I wish I could have been with her all day- the time flew by! Highly recommended- but be sure to have comfortable shoes for walking and standing. They are serious about having proper ID with you to get into the State House and Naval Academy or you will not get into those sites!!”
