“An interesting drive through”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

We didn't stop, just did a drive across the bridge and through the area. It's really lovely and I can imagine it would be pretty wild if a big storm blew through.

“crabbing from Tilghman Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Captain Russell DIZE on the Riley Cat took us our at 5:30 AM for a great morning of trot line
crabbing. We caught 2 bussels of crabs and had a wonderful time. Captain Dize is very
knowledgable and we learned so much. Fun to watch the sun come up and go out with the
other crabbers. We were amazed to learn that it takes 3 hours to prepare the bait for the
2500 ft. trot line. We dropped the crabs off at the Chesapeake House and they steamed
them for us. At 3:00 pm that day we were enjoying a crab feast with the crabs we had
dipped for that morning. What an awesome experience.

While staying in St. Michaels we took a morning drive to T. Island. Nothing to do or see there. Maybe there are restaurants but why bother Turned around and went back

“A place to get away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Tilghman Island is a great mix of working waterman town and vacation spot. Great for a day trip, weekend or week-long visit. Skipjack sail or lighthouse boat trip, good restaurants, kayaking - many more things to do.

“day trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We took a day trip after spending a few days in St. Michaels. Not too much to do. When you ask locals all they say is eat, drink take a boat ride. If you are not doing one of those things its pretty boring.
