From foggy dawns to striking sunsets the majestic and bountiful Chesapeake Bay has influenced life in the region for generations. Watermen at work and recreational boaters at play haunt the broad and beautiful rivers, back bays, quaint coves and bustling narrows that are home to fish, crabs oysters, ospreys herons and sea ducks.
Over the centuries, vessels of all types have navigated these waters. from the earliest dugout canoes, skipjacks, bug eyes and clipper ships. To passenger ferries, sailing yachts, motor cruisers and high performance racers. Waterfront eateries, seafood markets, packing houses and marinas along the Kent Narrows channel are evidence of a longstanding maritime culture.
