21551 Chesapeake House Drive Tilghman Island, MD 21671
Tilghman Island’s people and its waterways have always been tightly coupled. The Harrison House Marina – where a multitude of boats take to the early morning water for the catch of the day. Chartering guests who get to experience the best views of the Chesapeake and a bountiful catch on the bay is what Harrison House is all about. And you can do all the leaving from our own private marina right outside the Harrison House Country inn.
Harrison House also provides a unique and historical view into the history of the Chesapeake through our exclusive skipjack sailing charters that pick up guests from our docks on a daily basis. Your tour is a comprehensive “ecotour” of the Chesapeake Bay watershed, and two-hour tours launch throughout the day. Your knowledgeable and experienced crew will point out the unique flora and wildlife of the Bay, which you’ll see up-close from the deck of this authentic 19th-century sailing ship. You’ll learn about the history of the skipjacks, and how they ruled the Bay for over one hundred years, driving commerce, fueling growth and providing a future for families throughout the entire Chesapeake estuary. Harrison House skipjack tours are perfect for families, too. You’ll sail-dredge for oysters, and even have the opportunity to sail the ship yourself!
