Owner description: Imagine taking in the beauty of the Miles River and St Michaels on a replica of a 1930's steam ship called "The Patriot". We help you become familiar with the area as we cruise upon the beautiful Miles River, part of the Chesapeake Bay Estuary which is the largest in the Western Hemisphere. Learn about our local beginnings, view historic homes and wildlife, and watch local watermen harvest clams, oysters and the famous Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab during their respective seasons.The PATRIOT offers more than the historical scenic cruises for which it is famous. Four daily cruises are scheduled as well as evening charters for a variety of events. Let our captain and crew cater your small intimate affairs with close friends, family reunions, corporate events and more! Relax while you and your guests enjoy beautiful views along the Miles River that change with the seasons. We cruise from Mid-May to Mid- October at 12:30 and 2:30pm on Weekdays and at 11am, 12:30, 2:30 and 4:00pm on Weekends. We hold our famous Island Music Cocktail Cruise on many Saturday evenings at 5:30pm. Check our Patriot Cruises website for availability.We cruise weekends only from Mid-April through Mid-May and Mid-Ocotber through Mid- November at 12:30 and 2:30pm.Prices are $24.50 for Adults, $22.00 for those 65 and over, $12.50 for those 12-17, $5.00 for those 3-11 and all under 3 are free!

“Great, relaxing cruise around St. Michael's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

We had an amazing cruise with Capt. John. He was funny, entertaining and engaging with the kids. The views during the cruise were amazing.

To top it off, the kids were able to "drive" the boat. Great family outing!

Would highly recommend!

Easton Rotary celebrated it's 91st anniversary and a past presidents 75th birthday aboard the Patriot the middle of September. The captain & crew were wonderful to work with and everyone had a grea time. Weather couldn't have been more perfect and the sunset was divine. Thank you for making our celebration something to remember.

“Ask which side has a better view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

As you board, ask which side is the best for seating. On our trip today, most every point of interest was on the starboard side (right side of the ship). We were looking out the port side, but it was okay since it's a slow ride and we remembered what was pointed out as we returned to shore. Glorious views you can only enjoy from the water. I highly recommend it. Also, we boarded 30 minutes early, and set off 5 minutes early.

“Nice not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

Basically you ride 45 minutes up river and turn around and come back same path. Take binoculars to see the homes. Staff is friendly. The narration repeats itself at times.

“Nice way to see the beautiful Miles River and harbor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

We had out of town guests from New Jersey and took them to St. Michaels. We started with a tour on the Patriot, which was a wonderful introduction to the town and the area. The cruise was very nice and narrated along the way. The view of the homes and properties from the river is amazing!
