As this last month of Summer kicks-off before the start of the new school year, many parents are making their way to St. Michael’s, Maryland, to enjoy a little R&R…and what better way to escape then to get out on the water for a sunset sailboat ride; day of crabbing/fishing on the Bay; a wine/beer tasting cruise; and so much more!
One of our favorite recommendations to guests while visiting Wades Point, is to spend part of your day out on the water with some of our favorite local charters such as Captain Ed Farley with the Skipjack H.M. Krentz [#410.745.6080], Captain Iris Clarke with the Selina II Sailboat (and who is actually the granddaughter of the Sailboat’s original owners) [#410.726.9400], and Captain Wade Murphy; owner of the Rebecca T. Ruark Skipjack [#410.829.3976]. Every guest we send their way, neither choice ever seems to disappoint!
According to one of our recent guest reviews, there are a variety of reasons that make going out on the Rebecca T. Ruark Skipjack such a memorable experience:
“Thank you to the Wades Point Inn for recommending Captain Wade Murphy and the Rebecca T. Ruark! Expecting just a simple ride on the water, Captain Wade made our 2-hour experience something more special than any boat ride we’ve ever taken. Captain Wade and his family are unfortunately a dying breed! To be able to sail on a beautiful, historic vessel is one thing, but Captain Wade allows you to be a part of the experience. If you want to learn, help, and even pilot the boat, this is the place to be! Being with Captain Wade was absolutely the best part of our vacation! So much so, we went back again the next day! And at only $30 a person for the trip, the experience of being part of the crew and the history lesson we were given ended up being the least expensive thing we did over our entire vacation. Of course, Captain Wade will give you the option of just a ride with peace & quiet as well if that’s what you’re looking for, but we highly recommend choosing to be part of the experience!”
Thank you to ALL our local Captains’ and their crews for continually helping us create such wonderful memories for our guests…and don’t forget to ask us about how to book your boating trips on the water during your next visit to the Wades Point Inn on the Bay!
