Yacht Charters on The Bay Frequently Asked Questions
Prices are customized for each charter. Contact us to request a quote for your event.
What food and beverage services do you offer?
Events on Watermark® yachts are customized for your needs. Each of our vessels each contains a liquor license and a full beverage service where we can easily accommodate special orders. The staff works with preferred caterers whose experience on our yachts will deliver the best results for your party or event. However, if you have a selected menu or provider in mind, we’re more than happy to accommodate your requests (fees or additional surcharges may apply). Questions? Speak with one of our food and beverage specialists to learn more about specific details.

Are a certain number of guests required to charter a boat?

Is there a full crew on board when we take a cruise?
As U. S. Coast Guard-regulated vessels, our yachts are under the control of licensed captains, who, along with our crew, are trained in safety and security, so you and your guests can relax and enjoy the trip. Just ask one of our crew how we can care for you.
Do you run cruises in bad weather?
Our events take place rain or shine and charters are available from March through December. Most of our vessels have indoor spaces that are climate controlled. Ask how our Watermark® event planner will help you choose a vessel allowing your group to have an unforgettable experience…even if it rains.
Are your yachts safe?
We have a superior, decade-long safety record and take pride in our vessels, passenger safety, and our extensive security training. All of Watermark‘s vessels have emergency equipment, and most of our charter events take place on the protected waters of the Severn and Patapsco Rivers—waterways that are calm in almost all weather conditions. Learn more about our chartered boats.
How early can guests start boarding?
Boarding and departure locations vary based on your needs. Our event specialists will work with you to find the best location, assisting you with directions, parking, and the best place to dock. Because we are able to fully customize your trip, we will work with you to determine cruise routes, food/catering options, and the chartered course. Questions? Speak with one of our event specialists.
Are your vessels wheelchair accessible?
Most of our vessels are handicapped accessible. Feel free to discuss your needs with your event specialist so we can choose the best boat for your guests.
