Summer Schedule Announced

Experience the Patuxent River like never before! The Calvert Marine Museum is offering two-hour Public Sails from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. aboard the historic skipjack Dee of St. Mary’s. Cruises depart from the CMM dock on Saturdays, May 30, June 27, July 25, August 15, August 29, and September 19. Tickets are $15 for ages 8 – 12, 13 and older are $25. No children under 8 are permitted. Call 410-326-2042, ext. 41 to make a reservation.

New this season are Friday Sunset Sails from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Enjoy the views along the scenic Patuxent River and learn about the history of this traditional workboat, and the life of a working waterman. Cruises depart from the CMM dock on Fridays, June 12, July 17, August 7 and September 4. Tickets are $25 each. Guests are welcome to bring a snack and libation of choice aboard. (Children under 12 are not permitted on evening sails.)

The Dee of St. Mary’s, built in 1979, is one of the last skipjacks ever built on the Chesapeake Bay. The Dee was used originally in the commercial oyster fishery and then as a floating classroom in 1989 when the oyster population dwindled. The Museum took ownership in May 2013 and is pleased to offer public sails, educational opportunities, as well as private charters.
