We went on the Rum and Reggae your last night and had an awesome time. The weather was beautiful, the rum runners were delicious and we met some great people. The staff was very friendly and professional. Highly recommend.

My husband and I did the sunset cruise experience and it was phenomenal! The captain and first mate (aka bartender) were great and we truly enjoyed ourselves! Not sure who the mastermind behind the music was but the playlist was also great and helped make it even more enjoyable! We will definitely be back again to explore the water with Chesapeake City Water Tours!

Had a great time on the sunset cruise. The captain knew all the best places to point out and even the birds we saw. The drinks were fairly priced and it couldn't have been a smoother time. Quick book a cruise before the end of the season.

This was our first time in this are and we were looking for something to do and thought a little cruise would be perfect. It was well worth and we enjoyed the whole experience. They really do a great job with making you feel comfortable and they are very knowledgeable of the area go over all the spots on the cruise. The sights are amazing and we will be going back for another cruise. Check them out they do different times of day and you will not be disappointed.

Very relaxing! The crew member walked around on the boat talking to everyone and asked if we wanted him to take our pictures which was very nice! Definitely do this boat tour over and over again!

Pamela and I were married aboard "Chase n Dreams" on Saturday and it couldn't have been more perfect! Cap'n DJ and the crew accommodated us in every way. What a fantastic way to celebrate our day... They even ordered up great weather - again! 🙂

Chesapeake City Water tours shuttled a group of 60 (2 trips on their big boat) from our wedding rehearsal dinner at Schaefer’s to Chesapeake Inn to meet with our other guests for welcome drinks during our wedding weekend. DJ (the owner) set everything up with us easily and efficiently. DJ was a real pleasure to work with. Our guests were amazed by the beautiful boat that was lit up with blue LED lighting during our night-time ride. Everyone was talking about how awesome it was to have the boat ride included in our rehearsal dinner evening. I couldn’t recommend this company higher!
