Saved $2 by booking online. Get there early for best seating on top. Even with receipt, one still needs to check in and pick up tickets. Expect a line.

Fun relaxing trip across the Chesapeake - Tangier was amazing (so were the soft shell crabs). Crew/Captain were professional but also relaxed/approachable. We definitely plan on returning.
