River Cruises on the Dee of St. Mary's
The Dee of St. Mary’s is a sailing skipjack used in the museum’s Chesapeake Bay Field Lab programs. It is also available for private charters and public sails.
Charter cruises are available May through October at $1,000 for a three-hour sail. The Dee holds 38 passengers. If you bring food and drink aboard, there is a limit of 30 passengers. A $250 deposit is required at the time of booking, which includes a $25 non-refundable booking fee. Full payment is due two weeks prior to the sail. Fares are fully refundable, less the $25 booking fee, or with 48 hour’s notice. Full refunds are available if the captain cancels due to weather conditions.
For charter information, contact Melissa McCormick at 410-326-2042 ext. 41, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Office hours are Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Support the Dee
As one of the very few skipjacks ever built on the Western Shore, and one of only a handful of surviving skipjacks, we need your help keeping her sails
full. Become a plank owner and you won’t just have your name linked to a disappearing part of our maritime past, you’ll also help with the care and maintenance of this beautiful wooden vessel. It is very expensive to maintain an old wooden boat, keep the certification up to date, and meet all of the safety requirements. We could not sustain this effort without your support. Find out more.
