How easy is it to book a trip?

Watermark hosts tens of thousands of students every year.  We make it seamless and easy for you to book a trip.  Our youth group specialist will create a custom itinerary for your group.  Along with your contract you will receive directions, parking information, a map, and other appropriate paperwork (menus, other instructions, etc.). You will be given a receipt for any payment you make to Watermark.


How far in advance can I book?

We can book field trips well in advance. We recommend booking early to secure your preferred date. We can also accommodate last minute bookings though there may be less flexibility in available dates and times. We always suggest teachers call us at the beginning of the school year…or the end of the previous school year to guarantee a preferred date.


Are the group trips accessible?

Absolutely!  All of our walking tours and cruises are accessible to students, staff, and parents.  If you have any special requests that we can better accommodate you, please contact our sales office at (410) 268-7601 x200.
