Cocktail, Lunch, Dinner, and Private Cruises
We are sorry to inform you that unforeseen repairs have caused extensive delays in the return of the Black Eyed Susan to the Port of Snow Hill. Because there is no way to determine how long the repairs will take, we find we are unable to honor our current schedule. We know you are disappointed, we are too.
We will begin the refund process next week. All payments received will be refunded to the credit card you used to make your reservation. All refunds should be complete by April 30th. As for the future, we plan to keep everyone informed through Facebook and Town of Snow Hill press releases.

A delightful brunch. However, I suggest you have the water and coffee cups at the table. There should be a pitcher of water at each table as well.
Well, we ALL really enjoyed the day … even in the misty rain. I’ve been getting texts from folks saying how much they enjoyed it. Til next time….
Good afternoon. I had no idea this was your first brunch cruise! Let me say - it was fabulous and enjoyed by all (13 in our party). So much so, we are already looking forward to our next trip! Thank you and the crew for a beautiful day. It could not have been better weather or overall experience!
Had a great time! Please consider running a fall colors trip in early November. I have a lot of friends who would love to go on your boat again!
It was wonderful, Kathy. Perfect evening. We'll be back again!
Really had a wonderfully relaxing and pleasant lunch excursion yesterday. The staff was very accommodating and pleasant. We made the two and half hour trip from Annapolis not knowing what to expect. It turned out to be an extremely wonderful experience. The food was delicious and the idea of drawing random table numbers for serving was ingenious. No stampede to the serving table. It was a very smooth operation. This should be a must do day trip for anyone looking for a no hassle laid back few hours. Well worth it!!!
Just wanted to tell you how much we loved the Lunch Cruise yesterday. It was so relaxing and the Food was delicious! We are only in Ocean City for the Summer but we will be back next year and bring more friends.
I want to commend you for taking on this new business adventure in Snow Hill. We enjoyed our 9/3 evening dinner cruise on the Black Eyed Susan, however, there were a few things that could be improved.
- When boarding there was some confusion on our table number. The aggravation of the lady trying to resolve the issue was more disturbing than the actual problem.
- The food was very good, however, the meal was a nowhere near hot and the caesar salad was very watery.
- I booked the trip to celebrate our 50th Anniversary and my husband’s birthday, information for both events were supplied when I made the reservations. You cannot image my disappointment when absolutely nothing was done to recognize these milestones.
- Quiet background Minstrel Music would have been a nice touch while cruising the river.
We wish you continued success and have every intention of sailing with you in the future and will be recommending you to our family and friends.
We had a fantastic time and will come again.
We had a great time! Wonderful & friendly staff, music, food & drinks! Loved the cruise!
Very good experience will be doing it again for sure.
