Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum
The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, situated on the waterfront in historic St. Michaels is dedicated to preserving and exploring the history, environment, and people of the Chesapeake Bay.

The Museum's 18-acre waterfront campus was once the site of a busy complex of seafood packing houses, docks, and workboats. Today, there are ten exhibition buildings tracing the geological, social, and economic history of the Chesapeake Bay through the age of sail and the steamboat era to the advent of the gasoline and diesel-powered engines. The Museum's Howard Chappelle research library holds more than 10,000 volumes. The Museum's collection of Chesapeake Bay watercraft is the largest in existence numbering about 85 boats. Eleven of the collection's largest vessels are on floating display at the Museum's docks.

History and Nature Cruise of St. Michael's Waterfront
Cruise aboard the Patriot, a St. Michaels Tradition Since 1969! Become familiar with the area as we cruise upon the beautiful Miles River, part of the Chesapeake Bay Estuary which is the largest in the Western Hemisphere. Learn about the local beginnings, view historic homes and wildlife, and watch local watermen harvest clams, oysters, and the famous Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab during their respective seasons.

Relax while you enjoy beautiful views along the Miles River that change with the seasons. Listen to a historic narrative on the beginnings of St. Michaels and the evolution of the Chesapeake Bay and enjoy the full bar with light snacks and hot dogs.
