We had a wonderful time with Captain Wade Murphy. He is quite the character and deservedly so, because he's got a lifetime of experience as a waterman. We helped steer and hoist the masts. He sat us down for a conversation and Q&A about crabbing...More

Take a trip on the skipjack today. This historic boat will not be around forever and neither will Captain Wade. He is such a wealth of knowledge about the area and oystermen. You will be happy you took the time. Good price too. Bring cash.

A friend and I went with our 4 young kids on Captain Wade's midday tour. He was so kind and patient with the children. Life vests were provided. He allowed them to "help" and even steer. He sat down several times to tell us about...More

A very different sail from anything we've experienced. Captain Wade is a character - funny, knowledgeable and passionate about the bay and his Skipjack. He involves the passengers with helping to raise the sails or steer the boat - which my husband loved doing! The...More

What the last responder said is correct. He does special cruises if you have a group like a wedding party, or any other dedicated group.

Sunset cruise is 6 p.m. departure; there is a daytime cruise at 11 a.m. I think. Boat holds at least 20 people. I would be sure to bring a life jacket for a child/baby as not sure Capt. Murphy has those. Best to call him... More
