If you want to be surrounded by colorful maritime history, the freshest of seafood and a vibrant boating culture then you need to visit an island. Many travelers believe the best place on the Chesapeake to do that is on Tilghman Island, where you can sail, fish, kayak and paddleboard in paradise.
Tilghman Island is the only town in Talbot County to offer such a wonderful variety of ways to enjoy the beauty and bounty of the Chesapeake Bay.
You can sip on a margarita or glass of champagne under sail while taking in a glorious sunset. You can fight a trophy striper on one of our world-class sportfishing boats. You can paddle your kayak across a mirror smooth cove while fish break the surface and osprey soar overhead. You can achieve an inner peace during a paddleboard yoga class and you can do all of this during your wonderful visit to Tilghman Island.
You can join one of our professional Captains for sailing and fishing charters or rent a boat, kayak, paddleboard or jet ski to go it alone. You can even bring your own boat and launch here on the Island. Whatever your idea of a great time on the water is, you can do it here on Tilghman Island.
