PUBLIC SAILS ABOARD THE DEE OF ST. MARY’S
Looking for a great way to experience the Patuxent River? The Calvert Marine Museum is offering two-hour public sails aboard the historic skipjack Dee of St. Mary’s, departing from the museum dock at 2:30 p.m. Sail on Saturdays May 27, June 24, July 29, August 26, and September 30 and on Sundays July 9 and August 13. Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for children 5 – 12. No children under 5 permitted. Call 410-326-2042, ext. 41 to make a reservation. Advance reservations are taken by noon the Friday prior to the sail. Any remaining tickets may be purchased at the Admissions Desk on the day of the sail.
The Dee of St. Mary’s, built in 1979, is one of the last skipjacks ever constructed on the Chesapeake Bay. The Dee was used originally in the commercial oyster fishery and later as a floating classroom starting in 1989 when the oyster population dwindled. The Museum took ownership in May 2013 and is pleased to offer public sails, educational opportunities, and private charters.
