Tangier Island Cruise

& Lunch at Hilda Crockett’s

Crisfield, Maryland

 

Come aboard the “Steven Thomas” and chart a course back in time to a small, picturesque island in the Chesapeake Bay where history and charm converge.  Tangier Island has a permanent population of about 600 people, most of whom speak with an Elizabethan accent and enjoy a unique way of life.  As the boat makes the 14-mile trip out to Tangier Island, see some of the most beautiful scenery the Chesapeake Bay and Tangier Sound have to offer including the chain of islands that form the Tangier Sound, the waterfowl that inhabit the bay and learn the history of a few of the other islands of the bay – Fox’s Island, Watts Island, and Port Isabel.  The “Steven Thomas” has onboard restrooms, climate controlled conditions on the lower deck, open air on the upper deck and a snack bar.  A local tour guide will greet us upon arriving at the island, and will escort us down to the famous “Hilda Crockett’s Chesapeake House” (approximately a 6 block walk / 7 to 8-minute walk) where we will enjoy a delicious family style lunch.  After lunch enjoy a leisurely stroll around the island, or simply stop by a gift shop and pick up something to remember your trip before we cruise back to the mainland.  Note:  Fast food stops will be made both en route to Crisfield, Maryland, and on the return trip home.
