(Annapolis, MD) -- A new Annapolis tradition has launched…Jolly Express cruises aboard Watermark’s Miss Anne. This 45-minute cruise of Spa Creek includes hot chocolate and a lap blanket to ward off any chilly breeze. Operating since December 1, Jolly Express continues to cruise right through New Year’s Eve including Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Cruises begin at 5:00 pm with the final cruise departing at 8:00 pm from City Dock. Advance tickets are available at and, since many of the early cruises were sold out, reservations are recommended.

“We are very excited to have had such a positive reaction to our newest Annapolis cruise,” says Debbie Gosselin, president of Watermark. “It’s been fun to have local families as well as area visitors enjoy the lights of homes and decorations for the holidays along Spa Creek. We’ve even had several visits with pets enjoying the boat ride, too,” concluded Gosselin. Miss Anne, a 24’ tug-style vessel, is adorned with reindeer antlers and a blinking red nose on her bow.

Jolly Express cruises are Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, December 1-31 with tours leaving at 5:00, 6:00, 7:00 and 8:00pm. Tickets are $21 for Adults and $12 for children under 12 years old. Advance reservations are recommended; tickets can be purchased at or beginning at 4:45 pm day of cruises from Miss Anne’s captain at City Dock.
