Planning to Cruise Chesapeake Bay?

Bluewater Books and Charts knowledgeable staff will help you with all your navigation needs and passage planing.

As many cruisers know, Chesapeake Bay is a wonderful area to spend the fall season before heading south to Florida, Bahamas or the Caribbean. Whether you want to spend time on Maryland's iconic Eastern shore in Oxford or cruise the Potomac to our nation's capital in Washington or take in the Annapolis Boat Show (always held over the Columbus Day weekend in October) you are  sure to find activities to satisfy all your interests on and around the Chesapeake. The Bluewater staff has put together a recommended list of Chesapeake navigational needs. By the way, isn't it time to replace that ancient ensign with a new U.S. flag? Don't forget to sample the bay crab prepared every way imaginable.
