It's a week you'll never forget! We'll take three couples to the Chesapeake Bay for some of the best sailing on the east coast. We'll sail to a different port each day and you'll stay in a different Bed & Breakfast each night. You'll get to explore small towns and big cities, fresh food and fresh sea breezes. Talk to your friends about a great group vacation you can all share together!
Day 1: We'll depart early in the morning, cruise through the Chesapeake & Delaware canal and sail for Havre de Grace in the northern end of the Chesapeake Bay.
Day 2: Chestertown is our destination. We'll sail down the Bay, pass the Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge and meander up the Chester River for the night.
Day 3: It's back to the western shore of the Bay and our stop in Baltimore. We'll sail right into Baltimore's Inner Harbor for a night in the city.
Day 4: Now it's time for some peace and quiet. We'll head south down the Bay, under the Bay Bridge and around Kent Island. We'll settle in for the night in a nice, cozy spot on the Island.
Day 5: Farther south around the Island and back to the western shore, we'll make our way to Annapolis, home of the Naval Academy and some great restaurants.
Day 6: It's time to sail north to the upper end of the Chesapeake. We'll visit charming little Chesapeake City at the end of the canal.
Day 7: Across the canal and up the Delaware river, we make our way back to Philadelphia and home again.
We can do this as a 7 Day Trip or a shorter 4 Day Trip.
