The Details

What can guests expect? Presented by Cruises on the Bay by Watermark, guests - along with their furry, four-legged friends - will enjoy an hour-long ride on the Harbor Queen. The cruise also boasts complimentary treats (of the canine and human variety!), a cash bar, silent auction, music, and even doggie pools where "hot dogs" can cool off!

Food and drinks? To further celebrate our favorite pups, the cruise offers free refreshments for Fido. Light fare will be provided, compliments of Graul's Market in Annapolis, and a cash bar will also be available!

What about parking? No need to worry about where to park, since there are plenty of spaces in the nearby, metered lot. 

Are tickets still available? You're in luck! Tickets are still available. Admission is $30 per adult; $15 for children; and free for children under two. Dogs cruise free, too! (Dogs must be kept on leash). Click here to purchase.

The dress code? There's not a specific dress code, so we suggest wearing whatever's most comfortable. Temperatures for Thursday evening are forecast to be in the mid-70s, so a sweater might be a good idea... especially considering the wind typically picks up on the water.

Where do the proceeds go? Half of ticket sales - and all proceeds from the silent auction - will benefit the SPCA of Anne Arundel County.
