Bay Discovery Skipjack Trips

For most Chesapeake Bay fans, the word "skipjack" brings to mind romantic images of a Bay tradition. For watermen, the word means hard work and a long day of oyster dredging on the Bay. For trip participants on the Stanley Norman, the skipjack experience will involve a little of each!

Please join us for an upcoming trip (see dates below). While aboard, you'll be invited to help hoist the sails or simply enjoy the view! You will leave with a better understanding of oysters and their role in keeping the Bay clean as well as what CBF is doing to restore the oyster stocks in order to save the Bay.

Refreshments will not be provided, but you are welcome and encouraged to bring something to eat and drink. Alcohol is permitted for those 21 and older who drink responsibly.

Fee is $40.00 for the general public, $30.00 for CBF members. Not a member? Join today!

Children ages 10 and over are welcome when accompanied by an adult.
