What's the best-kept secret on Maryland’s Eastern Shore?

Over 3,600 species of plants and animals call the Chesapeake Bay home. It’s the largest estuary in the United States yet few know how incredible it truly is. The only real way to experience the magic of this place is to go on an adventure with a local.

The best-kept secret is the intricate waterways and incredibly diverse wildlife that call this place home. Having spent 40+ years of my life exploring this uniquely vast yet small part of this world, I could share hours of amazing stories with you!

Or… We could go on an adventure together!

We’re not talking just any adventure, we’re talking about an adventure tour that is completely customized for you and your family! There are so many wonderful things to see, smell, hear, touch, and even taste, on the Eastern Shore, you will be amazed what we can find, even right nearby...

If there’s a dock, there’s wildlife. We’ll bring the gear you need to see crabs, minnows and other fun creatures that live under and around the dock on your property. We may even find a seahorse! I can’t wait to teach you all about our famous bay residents, blue crabs, and oysters. If you want, we can even catch, cook and teach you how to eat them!
