Special & Seasonal Cruises

Annapolis & Baltimore

Our special events are planned around the season, holidays, city celebrations, our area partnerships and just for fun!

Check this page often as we regularly add more Annapolis events (like music cruises!) and events in Baltimore. Our special cruises often coincide with Baltimore events and events in Annapolis like 4th of July Fireworks.

If something fun is happening on the water – or the sky – we’ll get you the best seat in town to enjoy it. Our Rock ‘N River cruises are a unique form of Annapolis entertainment and our Wednesday Night Races Cruises are one of the most fun things to do in Annapolis. Watermark has fun every day and these special cruises are all about fun.
