Boat Talbot

Smooth Sailing

Paddle, Motor, or Sail the Chesapeake Bay

The Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries are remarkable for their pristine beauty and tranquility, a place where you go to get away. Where you can spot eagles, osprey, great blue herons, and thousands of migrating waterfowl such as Canada geese, diving ducks, and tundra swans.

Talbot County sits firmly beside the Bay and is very easily navigable by water, its hidden gems accessible under paddle, motor, or sail power. On your way, you’ll pass watermen and women plying their workboats along with the few remaining skipjacks, harvesting the bounty of the Bay. Join in the adventure with a fishing or crabbing tour, chat with them at the marinas, and enjoy their harvest at restaurants throughout the county.
