We ended up spending the entire summer cruising the Bay, basing ourselves out of Solomons, Maryland, a fairly central location. Like most great cruising grounds, such as Canada’s North Channel, the Bahamas, PNW San Juan and Gulf Islands, you could spend a lifetime cruising the Chesapeake Bay and not see it all. From Annapolis, to St Michaels, Tangier Island and up the Potomac there is so much to experience so, if time allows, try to linger a bit to savor and enjoy this historic cruising area.
