Sit back and relax .....
Leave the driving to Captain Ron.

Tilghman Island is conveniently located on the Chesapeake Bay with many attractions just a short boat ride away. For example, just 3 miles northwest are the Poplar Islands, 5 miles further is Bloody Point Light House and 3 miles southwest of Tilghman Island's southern tip is Sharps Island Light House. Then there is the town of Oxford along the Tred Avon River which is only 10 miles east, not to mention Harris Creek and Broad Creek in between. All of these shorelines are peppered with mansions, estates, farm lands and natural salt-flats packed with wildlife that make for spectacular views. It would take days or even weeks to totally explore all of these sights; however several in the same general direction can be visited within the 3 hours allocated for our standard Waterway Tour. For those preferring to spend a little less time out on the water, we offer a Tilghman Island Circumnavigation Tour which takes about an hour. And if none of our preset tours are of interest, then just let Captain Ron know your wants or needs and he'll make it happen.

FYI - Dogs are welcome. Plan on arriving at Tilghman Island Marina at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled departure time.

This area has a lot of choices when it comes to selecting an end of day celebration cruise. You really can't go wrong with any of them because just being out on the Chesapeake Bay to watch one from a boat is awesome. And although we do not run Sunset Drifts every evening as sea conditions, clouds and weather must be just right; if we are planning a Drift and have room, you're more than welcome to come along. We typically depart from the Tilghman Island Marina docks about 45 minutes prior to sunset and are generally back within 30 minutes of its passing. This typically results in being on the water for about 1.25 hours. As such, consider making dinner reservations at one of Tilghman's waterside restaurants about 30 minutes later to complete an evening you'll long remember. So bring drinks, snacks and friends for a personal party or just enjoy a little romantic time with your First-Mate before dinner.

FYI - We are limited to groups of 6; dogs are welcome. Plan on arriving at Tilghman Island Marina at least 30 minutes prior to boat's departure time.

If you are serious about nothing else in life,
please make boating safety
your one exception.

For those who grew up powerboating, operating one can be as easy as driving a car. Even if it wasn't part of your childhood, experience can be gained through years of boating with family and friends. Just being a passenger makes learning to drive all that much easier. For those without prior experience, gaining it can be difficult. Things like anchoring, docking, navigating and tie-up can all be overwhelming. The most obvious solution is to take a training class however hands-on classes are difficult to find.

For folks interested in sailing, it's easy to find sailing clubs or organizations that provide on-the-water sailing classes however there are not nearly as many places that offer on-the-water powerboat training. Of course the Power Squadrons, Coast Guard Auxiliary and a few others offer classroom instruction. Attending any of those is highly recommended as learning the academics is necessary but then you'll still need the hands-on which is where our Private Powerboat Training can help.

So if learning how to handle an outboard motor boat is desired, then schedule a session with Captain Ron. You may even bring up to 5 others to participate in the class for a small upcharge. The 2 hour session may well be all the time needed if you have prior boating experience, are by yourself and just need some docking practice with coaching. On the other hand, if you have never driven before or are bringing several people with to share the class, then the 4 hour session is best. Regardless of which is chosen, the majority of your training will be hands-on with you at the helm of a small outboard motor boat.
