Want to act like a local? Get out on the water! Many a local will tell you the best way to experience the destination is by boat, paddleboard or kayak – anything that will get you out on the water! Boasting 533 miles of shoreline, our coves, creeks, rivers, streams, and Chesapeake Bay are among Annapolis and Anne Arundel County’s most popular streets and alleyways. Along with our people, our waterways comprise the heart and soul of the destination. The good news is, we’re willing to share! 

With so many on-the-water options to choose from, it’s easy to pick the fit that’s right for you. Whether you choose to relax aboard a public sail or cruise or prefer to charter or captain your own boat, a host of safe, socially distancing options are available. If paddle boarding, kayaking, or canoeing are more your style, you’re in the right place. Tight on time? Hop aboard a water taxi. It’s a fun, affordable way to squeeze an on-the-water excursion into a busy itinerary.
