We had a great time on the famous skipjack, 'Rebecca Ruark' and learned a great deal about the history of the Bay, oyster dredging and Tilghman Island. Captain Wade Murphy is a third generation islander who runs charters on his skipjack, the oldest boat in the US sanctioned by the coast guard. Wade and his son run the excursions, about 2 hours each on this beautiful ship. During that time, he tells numerous stories about his experiences with oysters and sailing ships. He is a wonderful character, a national treasure really - makes it a fun trip! Beautiful waters, beautiful ship, and lots of interesting information. There is also a sunset sail which would be lovely, but we sailed in April and it was a bit chilly for an evening sail. In the late spring through early fall it would be lovely!
