Blue Angels Highlight of Commissioning Week

Blue Angels Air Show

The Blue Angels action occurs in the skies above the Severn River each year in Annapolis as thousands of spectators gather to view the show from the shoreline or, if you're lucky, from a boat anchored on the river. This powerful demonstration of America's strength might make the hair stand on the back of your neck.

Schedule your boat tour, cruise, or charter to experience their awe inspiring performance from the water!
