Piers 1 in Baltimore's Inner Harbor

Baltimore, MD 21202
Paddle Boats Description
Why not experience Baltimore's Inner Harbor from the water? Have fun and get a good workout by paddling around either in a regular paddle boat or in the more popular "Chessie" paddle boats. "Chessie" is the name of a mythical sea monster that is said to roam the waters of the Chesapeake Bay. If you don't want to paddle but still want to get out on the water, sit back and just steer an electric boat instead. On sunny summer days the water gets crowded, so be careful to steer clear of other boaters. Be sure to check out our other Baltimore vacation ideas.
