Overview
More
Our Chesapeake Bay sunset tours are private charters that typically accommodate up to 8 passengers, though arrangements may be made for more. We love kids too. Their joy reminds us of the dolphins! Trips are approximately 2-3 hours in duration. Start times depend upon the timing of the sunset, but typically begin between 4-5:30 in the afternoon. The costs for your adventure is $375, which includes beverages of your choice and a cheese, vegetable and cracker platter.
