Join us for an easygoing, educational and exciting kayak tour through one of America’s oldest seaports. Annapolis harbor and the United States Naval Academy will be the backdrop for our 2-hour, "history rich" adventure. Our tour is designed for everyone and anyone can navigate the waters with our sit–on-top kayaks.
We start our excursion on the headwaters of Spa Creek at Truxton Park. As soon as you arrive, Kayak Annapolis staff will greet you with a big hello. Whether you are on our morning, afternoon or evening tour all of your needs will be met. We provide plenty of water, juices and snacks to keep you hydrated and energized for a memorable paddle through history. After a brief description of equipment and paddle school session, you will be ready to kayak Annapolis.
Paddling the calm headwaters of Spa Creek, you will experience the hidden gems of Annapolis. You will feel you’ve been taken back in time as a clear view of the nation’s oldest state house becomes a picturesque backdrop to the beautiful homes lining the creek and the old oyster and crabbing boats bobbing rhythmically in the water. Our voyage takes us first toward Eastport, a quaint town rich in maritime history. Then, we continue under the drawbridge and onward to the United States Naval Academy. Don’t forget to wave as we pass other seagoing vessels (but, be sure to watch out for the pirates!). Next, we arrive at the hub of downtown Annapolis, the world famous City Dock, where we’ll take a moment’s pause for pictures and a quick rest before we continue on. As it’s homeward bound the historical sites don’t stop, and it’s a perfect time to "google" your guide about anything Annapolis.
