Annapolis Transportation & Boat Tours

In a city known as America’s sailboat capital, it’s no wonder that people here use the waterways to get around. Annapolis is home to some fabulous water tours and water taxis are a favorite form of transportation. But don’t worry if you don’t quite have your sea legs just yet you can still get where you’re going by land if that’s what you prefer.

However you travel, don’t leave Annapolis without experiencing one of our stellar boating experiences. Help sail the 74-foot schooner called Woodwind or try your hand at kayaking. And if all of that sounds like a little more action than you envisioned, you can always sit back and enjoy a narrated Annapolis boat tour that will get you up close and personal with some of our city’s most famous landmarks.

Navy Home Game Transportation

Loews Annapolis Hotel will be offering complimentary shuttle service during the Navy home games for our registered hotel guests (valid ID and key card will be required). We have a little extra something to make your walk just a little easier. The eCruiser will take you from our door step to 4 blocks south of the stadium. For additional information, please contact the hotel direct or email
