Excellent narration by Nick and Captain Amanda. We live in MD and enjoyed getting out in the water to see/hear about past/present in Baltimore’s HUGE harbor. Everything was Covid compliant which was very reassuring.

The narrative was very good. The tour of the harbor was great. As a long time Baltimore resident, I even learned a few things about the harbor. I wish we had gone to Canton and sen Fort McHenry and the port and the Bay.
