Join the Skipjack Nathan of Dorchester – an authentic traditional oyster dredging vessel and Maryland’s state boat – for a two-hour cruise on the Choptank River.
Nathan usually sails from May through October. Each sail is two hours long and generally includes an oyster dredging demonstration. Sails are unique depending on wind, weather, captain and crew. Advance reservations are recommended and accepted online until midnight of the day before the sail. They carry up to 20 passengers per trip and the boat leaves the dock promptly on schedule from Long Wharf in Cambridge.
During summer Saturdays they sail from 10am to 12pm to escape the hottest part of the day. Check the booking page for details and dates when they sail earlier in the day.
The fee is $40 per adult and $15 per child (age 4-12); children under age 4 are free.
