Fresh Things to Do

Featured Activity


  • Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum

    One of the main draws to St. Michaels is the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, founded on Navy Point in 1965. This interactive museum spans 18 acres, 35 buildings and the world's largest collection of Chesapeake Bay boats. This waterfront campus is one of the most famous working shipyards in the U.S. and absolutely worth a visit. Check the museum website for their seasonal hours.

    Waterman's Wharf. During this exciting hands-on exhibit, harvest your meal straight out of the waters of Fog Cove with an eel or a crab pot.

    Oystering on the Chesapeake. The oyster industry is an age-old trade in Maryland and the museum offers a tour of this long-standing tradition with a working waterman.

    Floating Fleet. Likely the museum's most famous collection, view well-known boats that include the Edna E. Lockwood, the last sailing log-bottom bugeye. You will also see the Edmee S., a log racing canoe staffed by the museum during local canoe races, and the Old Point dredge boat, which was built all the way back in 1909.
