Great Boat Ride    

Wonderful day and experience. Lovely sunset. Captain and wife were great! Loved every minute.

Outstanding Cruise and Hosts      

Captain Mark & First and Only Mate, Suzanne were the perfect hosts for our trip on the bay. Their boat is super and our trip was too short! Next time we will book for a double - or possibly overnight. They offer it all and it's all good! Little 3 yr old grand daughter also had a great time helping the Captain with the rigging and enjoying the list - the bigger the better for her! It's ALL GOOD!

Mark Adams - Alexandria, VA

Great stories and informative trip!     

The weather was a tad wet and overcast, so the Captain zipped up the boat for us to ride comfortably in the cabin. We were the only guests that day. The Captain easily answered all questions pertaining to the boat, boating in itself, and interesting experiences. We sipped on margaritas and enjoyed the rolling of the boat in a strong headwind. A definite do-over!

Review of Chesapeake Bay Sailing Trip     

My son gave us a gift certificate at Christmas for a sailing trip out of Rock Hall, MD. Our trip was on 9/19/15 and we had a wonderful time! The skipper & first mate were lots of fun and very friendly. They offered us complimentary margaritas, soft drinks & water. We were sorry when it was time to head back to the pier. It was a lovely little trip that we highly recommend. (And a great gift!)

A Lovely Afternoon with Lovely People    

My great experience actually began before we even boarded, when someone from Blue Crab Chesapeake Charters called us to warn us about a car accident on the Bay Bridge that was causing gridlock. They offered to reschedule if we were not able to make our original sailing time, but we were fortunate to arrive just in time. 
After battling through the terrible traffic to reach Rock Hall, my husband and I had a wonderful experience sailing on the Crab Royale with our friends and Captain Mark and Suzanne. The boat is clean, well-kept, and comfortable. The crew are friendly, and they helped us forget about the stress of the long drive with complimentary margaritas. It's also so nice to sail on a smaller vessel with few passengers - you get to really enjoy the quiet and beauty of the bay. 
Many thanks to Blue Crab Chesapeake Charters for a very enjoyable experience!

Rock Hall Sailing     

I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my husband. I wasn't sure what to expect. The experience was great. The captain was friendly and did a wonderful job of explaining everything as we went along. I would recommend this to anyone. The cost was more than affordable and I cannot wait to do this again.

Lois Vaughan - Lorton, virginia

Chesapeake Bay Sailing Trip    

To much wind but very well handled by the skipper. We never raised more than about 2/3 of the roller genoa. That was plenty of sail. I have been sailing since childhood and I was hoping to have a chance at the helm but under the conditions I didn't even consider asking. Note; I crewed on the boat that won class B in the Annap/Newport 1957

Ben Heilman - Chestertown

Rock Hall Sailing Trip    

We had a great time out on the water. We received this as a gift, and we're looking forward to making another trip back.

Alex - McLean, VA

Sailing Trip    

We were treated very well by Captain Mark & Suzanne. My husband has to use crutches to walk from a back injury. They were extremely helpful & concerned about his comfort. It was one of the best experiences we've encountered! I recommend a Chesapeake Bay Sailing Trip to anyone!

Beth & Allen Haught - Rock Hall, MD

Sunset sailing trip     

My wife and I received this trip as a gift from our daughter and it was terrific. The evening had an Indian summer temperature, a beautiful sunset and smooth as silk sailing. Capt. Mark and his Mate Suzanne were a pleasant engaging couple who supplied some good background music and a nice margarita. The trip was very enjoyable and relaxing. We will sail with them again with some friends.

What a fantastic gift to give someone! This trip was given to me as a 50th birthday gift. We could have not asked for a more beautiful evening to sail. The crew was extremely nice. The boat was just beautiful. The overall experience was one I will be taking about for a long time.

Kim Georg - Rock Hall, MD

Perfect evening for sailing, beautiful sunset, great boat, and Captain Mark was the best.

Colbert's - Rockville, MD

Sunset Sail      

We has a wonderful time recently with Captain Mark and First (and only) Mate Suzanne. This was our second trip with them, after a gap of a few years, and it was as delightful as before. They were kind and helpful when our out-of-town friend's six-year-old got a little seasick and thought he would throw up (he didn't!). We plan another trip with Mark and Suzanne soon. Their service is one of the nicest features of a nice town.

Jeff & Penny Brown - Rock Hall MD

Linda - Baltimore, MD

Bay Sailing Cruise      

A great sail. It was a very hot day, but very comfortable on the water. The captain and crew were very hospitable and enjoyed showing off their community. Rock Hall is a bit of a hike, but a nice little town.

Dan - Washington

Sailing Trip      

Had a great time sailing with Captain Mark and Mate Suzanne. Everything was so perfect.

Ed - Valley Lee

Chesapeake Bay Sailing      

My daughter and I had the most enjoyable sailing experience last Sunday with Captain Mark and his first mate Suzanne. It was a beautiful evening and the sunset was spectacular. Captain Mark timed the crescendo of Tchaikovsky perfectly as the last bit of sun descended over the water. The weather was perfect and Mark and Suzanne make it a most memorable experience with their pleasant, friendly demeanor. I highly recommend this experience to others.

Marc Dapas - Washington, D.C.

Sailing on the Chesapeake      

Captain Mark runs a good show. We had a nice sail on a beautiful evening with well timed music to cap off the sunset. We would recommend this and plan on doing it again.

Matt - Chesapeake Bay

We had a wonderful time on this sailing adventure. Captain Mark and Suzanne were amazing. This is definitely an amazing way to see the sunset over the Baltimore skyline, and a fun way to spend time with your loved one. I would definitely do this again.

Bri Calaman - Carlisle, PA

Sailing Chesapeake      

I booked this as a gift for my then fiance as a Christmas present. Unfortunately, we could not make the date last year because my father passed away. A year later we were still able to make the trip. Mark and Suzanne were very accommodating and friendly. It was a calming sailing experience.

Tiffany - Gaithersburg, MD

Sailing Chesapeake Bay      

We had an awesome time sailing the Chesapeake Bay out of Rock Hall, Maryland. We often cruise the bay in our powerboat but not too often in a sailboat. The water was a little rough with the impending hurricane, but we had a wonderful time and lots of wind to fill the sails! Thank you for a great time.

Sailing Review      

Mark and Suzanne were perfect hosts! They know how to make their guests relax and have fun. We were able to bring champagne on the boat, take lots of photos, and enjoy a gorgeous sunset. They even let my boyfriend surprise me with a proposal on the boat! Thanks for a wonderful experience!

Terrific Sail      

My kids bought me a sailing trip and gave me a trip filled with love. Just 2 hours on this boat is vacation. Thank you Captain Mark and the loyal first mate!

Great Sailing Trip!      

I enjoyed it.

Somer White - Baltimore

The Perfect Outing      

Captain Mark and his wife were lovely hosts for our evening boat ride. They were both beyond friendly and warm, but still had a very professional demeanor. The night and weather were perfect, though I know that's really beyond anyone's control. We wish we had arranged to spend the night out in Rock Hall, but it was still a doable drive after having a late dinner at the restaurant where you board. Definitely a great experience!

Sarah R. - Washington, DC

Got More Than I Bargained For!      

My family and I had a blast! More fun that I had expected. Capt. Mark and Suzanne made us feel comfortable and they shared stories with us so it was bit of learning experience. We had snacks and drinks on-board. Everything was perfect. I would definitely go back again. And I can't wait to try another experience with Experience Days!

Cleona Vassell - Frederick, Md

Afternoon Sail on Chesapeake      

Beautiful! Captain Mark and Suzanne were great! My girls were at the helm and used the antique spy glass to look for pirates. It was quiet, serene, and stunningly beautiful. Wonderful memories which will live on forever. If only they could figure out how to outlaw power boats on the bay!

Melissa and Erv - Rock Hall, MD

Perfect 26th Birthday Gift for the Perfect Boyfriend      

Absolutely in awe the moment we arrived at the dock. We got caught in traffic and arrived a tad bit later than expected. They tried calling us but we did not receive the calls until we parked. By the time we had called them back, they had already pulled off but came back to get us and it was amazing. Mark and 1st mate, Suzanne, were great hosts and they made my boyfriend's 1st ride on a yacht a memorable one. We loved the people we experienced it with as well. Thanks again and we will be doing this again in the future!!!!!

Melissa Burford - Washington, DC

A Magnificent Experience Gift     

As a third year anniversary present, we received an Experience Days certificate for a sunset sailing cruise for two on the Chesapeake Bay. From the moment we arrived in Rock Hall, we found ourselves in awe at the beauty of the bay and the hospitality of our hosts. The sail was magnificent - much better than we ever could have imagined. We look forward to a new annual tradition of sailing with Blue Crab Charters and relaxing on the bay.

Bill and Eileen - Philadelphia
