410.924.9975 – North side of Dogwood Harbor on Tilghman Island

Be a waterman for a day!

Go fishing or crabbing aboard Elle’s Angels with Capt. Wade Murphy III on the beautiful Chesapeake Bay! Learn a new skill and keep 1/2 bushel of crabs per person. Captain Wade also offers sunset cruises aboard his Bay-built work boat.

Captain Wade Murphy III is a third generation waterman who has worked the waters around Tilghman Island his entire life. What better way to learn about the seafood industry than to join a local waterman for a day on the Bay? Want to hear about the days of sail-driven oyster dredge boats or Skipjacks dragging the bottom for the highly prized Chesapeake Oyster? Captain Wade grew up working with his father dredging for oysters during the brutal winter months aboard the family boat. Ask him about the Annual Skipjack races that are so hotly contested that it’s not uncommon for a Captain to push his boat so hard that it capsizes for nothing more than glory and bragging rights among his peers. He and his father have won their share of them.
