Activities on The Chesapeake Bay, Rappahannock River and Carter’s Creek

Whether you’re here for the ambiance or to unwind, there’s something for everyone in this classic waterfront town on the Chesapeake Bay. Join us on one of our cruises, observe osprey and heron as our captain guides you through calm, clear inlets; or, unpack a picnic on one of our nearby beautiful pristine beaches. Whatever you choose, we assure you that your water experiences will be memorable.
