I have lived in downtown Baltimore since 1980. When the boats showed up until now.... the best activity in the city. If you have not participated i n this event, you are missing a great time.

This is fun, I did with family but quite a workout. You can paddle around the harbor in a certain area and it can offer a unique view from the water but wow what a workout. Paddling these boats can be hard, make sure you...More

Life vests are required. They are not cleaning the covers and they are sweaty and dirty. The dragon boats are cute. but difficult to paddle forward at times. Not cheap. $10 per person.

It opens at 11AM. The Inner Harbor is a very busy place, but there are paid-parking lots with a number of hotels there, etc -- yes, it'll cost you to park, but there's plenty to see and do in the area, not just the paddle... More
