Sailing is our passion. We want to share it with you!
Welcome to Sea Baltimore! We warmly invite you aboard to experience the peace of the water and power of the wind.
Captain Rob at the helm
Sea Baltimore is a family operation. We purchased our 37' boat, Wave Equation, with the desire to bring small groups out on the water to experience the tranquility of the Chesapeake Bay — in the heart of Baltimore’s bustle. We hope you’ll enjoy a moment to relax and reconnect with nature.
A native South African, Captain Rob has been sailing since he was a kid —and has navigated the waters all over the globe, from Africa to Asia. (Fun facts: He lived on a sailboat for a year and traded coconuts on the East African coast. He may or may not have also smuggled rum.) He has devoted most of his career to natural resource conservation, only deepening his love and passion for the sea and the animals that inhabit it. In the past, he also led safari tours in Botswana. In essence, Captain Rob loves making the natural world accessible to everyone!
Our tours are small by design — you won’t find tour guides blasting facts in your ears through loud microphones. To provide you with an intimate experience, we never take more than 5 people on board at a time.
If you're interested in "learning the ropes," Captain Rob welcomes you to help with sailing duties. Or perhaps you’d prefer spending some moments at the bow of the ship, with the wind in your hair, listening to the sail flap in the wind. Whatever tour you choose, we aim to provide an experience that lets you, for a few hours, become one with the sea.
We offer a variety of different tours during the week. Click here to see all of the tour options

to discuss. We also partner with local caterers to help build a trip that is just what you're looking for.
We leave from the dock in the Canton neighborhood, east of the Inner Harbor. We meet outside Bo Brooks restaurant, then lead you to the boat and cast off from there. There's usually plenty of free street parking nearby, or you can park in the paid lot adjacent to the marina.
