Morning arrival in Baltimore, Maryland at the Visitor Center where you’ll have free time to explore the Inner Harbor and enjoy the festivities during the annual Maryland Fleet Week and Air Show. It will feature 20 ships, including U.S. Navy, British and Canadian “grey hulls”. The ships will be staged in the Baltimore Inner Harbor, Fell’s Point and the North Locust Point terminal. Come celebrate the rich maritime traditions of the Chesapeake Bay and Marylanders’ contributions to the country’s defense.
This afternoon board a boat at the Baltimore Finger Pier for a three hour harbor cruise which will include opportunities to view the Blue Angels, as they perform.
The Blue Angels are the United States Navy’s flight demonstration squadron. It was formed in 1946 making it the second oldest formal flying aerobatic team in the world, after the French. The Blue Angels’ six demonstration pilots fly the F/A-18 Hornet in more than 70 shows, at 34 locations throughout the United States each year. They still employ many of the same practices and techniques used in their aerial displays from 1946. An estimated 11 million spectators view the squadron during air shows each year. Don’t miss the chance to see this spectacular event.
Following the cruise enjoy a delightful dinner at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.
