Gorgeous weather, scenery and sunset on a hot summer day. Add superb conversation with Captain Ed on everything related to oystering in on the Chesapeake Bay and you’ve got yourself a memorable occasion. Definitely treat yourself to a skipjack sail!

Dress is casual boat wear. In August we wore shorts and tee shirts. Good non- skid shoes are essential.
