The boat was the perfect size for our group of 11 and Captain Jason was so interesting and informative. We learned so much about the Chesapeake, the lighthouses and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. It was just the right balance of information and relaxation. The tour was about 2.5 hours and we ended up back at the pier at sunset. It was calm and relaxing and so much fun. We had a blast, and it's not easy to please 11 women! I would definitely recommend it to anyone who will be visiting the Stevensville/St.Michael's area.

We took a Friday evening sunset cruise with our grandchildren. The weather was picture perfect, the company of the others on the cruise enjoyable and Captain Gary told us many stories keeping both children and adults entertained the entire trip. An evening to remember for our entire family. Thanks Captain Gary and Duncan.

A nice day on the water with Captain Gary. We took in 9 lighthouses (most north of "the bridge"). Weather was (very) hot and humid with little to no wind. The mid-day stop for lunch at a marina/beach club was welcome and the wind picked up in the afternoon. We had a boat full of lighthouse enthusiasts who shared stories of lighthouse excursions from Scotland to Europe to Alaska and the continental 48. Capt Gary was well versed in the history and legends associated with each of the nine beacons we saw. Fist Mate Jason, a marine biologist by trade was extremely informative about all things Chesapeake Bay. All in all a very good day. A word to the wise: Bring snacks and plenty of drink. The Bay can be hot! Highly recommend!
