Hop on board and read on as we take a virtual tour of this on-the-water wonderland. Good provisioning near the marina is hard to find. It has that special magic to ease the urban working grind and get you into a Chespeake Bay frame of mind. The Oxford Market, a convenience store, is the only spot in town to buy any essentials for provisioning. Hands down, my favorite inn in Swan Creek is Osprey Point.
The Annapolis Yacht Basin has fuel and Annapolis Harbor Boat Yard is a full service maintenance yard that is conveniently located on Spa Creek near the historic district. Life is easy in this inviting bayside town, with bikes and golf carts sufficing for transportation and menus heavy with local seafood. Inevitably, a gust comes and the boat tips and becomes a yard sale: all part of the fun, except when there are lots of sea nettles jelly fish in the water. One minute you can be dropped off near forests and cliffs then the next to a sandy island.
Michaels has been seeing a bit of a culinary explosion, and it now has some very nice, hip, new restaurants. Hinckley Yacht Services also has a full-service yard in town.
Founded in 1957, Maryland Nautical Sales is one of the largest nautical chart agents in the United States. A few architecture styles are the Georgian, Greek Revival and Federal from the early 1900s. St Michaels, near the eastern shore, has its own history exhibiting restored vessels at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum and you can participate in the boatbuilding activities.
The museum chronicles the history of Chesapeake Bay watermen and its 36 acre park features outdoor sculpture gardens and a venue for waterfront plays and concerts.
Also, list other activities and outings you want to visit during this round trip excursion. Below Guide to Cruising Chesapeake Bay find a sample itinerary, complete with marina information, deals and discounts. The best option for provisioning is the Tri-Star Supermarket located about 5 miles from the marina.
They have many fishing tournaments, festivals, sailing races and local eateries.
You never have to leave the water to have a good time—and when the day is almost done, be sure to find a cozy spot by shore to kick back, relax and watch the sunset over the bay! Swan Creek, just north of the Bay Bridge, was my last stop before heading home to Baltimore.
Located on the northern shore of the Miles River, Wye Island is rife with bald eagles and great blue herons.
