Sail the Chesapeake Bay on a Skippered half-day or full-day charter. We sail with sail with a maximum of 4 passengers in your private party.
Captain Russ will mix in some sailing instruction if desired. Passenger participation encouraged but not required. Experienced passengers may steer and trim sails while the Captain looks on to ensure safe navigation. Depending on preferences and length of charter we may find a restaurant for lunch on full day charters, find pods of dolphins visiting the area, stop at a beach to explore, or sail the entire time. You may bring a cooler with your lunch or snacks and some beverages.
