For our 40th anniversary we rented a beautiful 40 foot sailboat for a day out on the bay from Chesapeake Yacht Charters (www.chesapeake-charters.com ) Captain Bob Bell was very friendly and knowledgeable as he guided us through the bay. He even gave good advice to family members who were concerned about getting sea sick and they all felt great all... More

I use to take many trips to Rock Hall and I recommend that you take a trip here as well. The marinas are so fun to walk around and see, and the beautiful scenery and shops and the food is superb, obvilously especially the seafood. I took a wonderful boat ride and found my experiences on the Chesapeake Bay to... More

A favorite destination for boaters from the nearby rivers and the Chesapeake Bay, Chesapeake City is a place worth visiting. With five bed and breakfasts, fine restaurants and shops the entire City can be walked in under an hour. Download the Walking Tour Map from the Chesapeake City website and you'll be well armed to see the homes built around... More

Trolling for striped bass. I've catch several, only three the permitted size. Good boat, good people, nice trip, not enough emotion (because of the size of the fish)

The bridges do drive are amazing. We drove from Norfolk back to MD over the bay and it was just stunning especially early in the morning when the sun is riding and the sky seems to be one with the sea, have to go back. The bay was filled with boats and early morning fishers.

We took this ride on a sailboat from Annapolis in Maryland and sailed into the sea for two hrs.The weather was extremely good and the thirty odd persons on board were entertained to some good commentary and beverages and chips.The Annapolis area is beautiful with big restaurants and awesome food.One should enjoy this place at weekends

The homes were so well kept,and the coastal sections were very clean and appealing.There was a beach area available for swimming and recreation for the kids.Don't expect to go shopping on a Monday,most of the shops...

On a lovely evening when we had just planned to look at shells and wander, we all waded out and had a great time. Lovely sand feels great on the feet. Not very salty here with the confluence of the Susquehena River and the ocean, so my kids were happy. Mild waves if anything, not far from parking. One of... More

Nothing but great things to say! Road is awesome, tunnels great, view magnificent. We will plan another trip that we can take this. It is $16 but if you want to return it is only $5. Even on the over cast day it was beautiful.
