Paysay One of the great things about Haven Charter is all the great destinations within reach in one day (maybe a little more than 8 hours). The list would include, Georgetown on the Sassafras River, Havre de Grace, Baltimore, Annapolis, Kent island and the Kent Narrows, St. Michaels, the Wye River, Oxford and the Tred Avon River. These are all great places to visit. Then there's the list of great resturants, but I'll let someone else do that.

Chesapeake Bay Chartering

The Bay in the spring is wonderful for introducing someone to sailing.
We charter our boat in a turn-key fashion. Just add provisions and sailing gloves. Check out for info.
May the winds be with you, Jess.

grantheadifen from what i've heard at the boat shows I go to, Annapolis bay charters are one of the better companies to charter from in Annapolis.

Harbor Sail, Fells Point

I chartered a 25’ C&C from Harbor Sail, the condition was immaculate and the owner was extremely kind courteous and helpful. The rates are fantastic at $200/1st day and 65/day thereafter. Good people

Coincidentally the picture above was taken on the Luv II

NickPapagiorgio It's probably to late to be of any help to the O.P., but for others that come across this page, I'll vote for Haven also. I chartered with them for a four day charter last summer. The owners are really nice and laid back. The boats range from new and nice to older and not as nice but, like others have said, the condition is reflected in the price. We went from Rock Hall to St. Michaels, to Annapolis, to Baltimore, and back to Rock Hall. That's a nice four day cruise if anyone is interested.

I'll also point out Baysail, which is located in Harve de Grace, MD (northern tip of the Bay). It used to be owned and operated by a lady named Kim who was quite controlling (although generally nice). As of about two years ago it was sold and the new owners are much more laid back. A guy named Steve manages (not sure if he's an owner) and he's really nice and helpful. I've chartered with them about four times and I also received my ASA certifications from them (great instructors).

josrulz I also vote for Haven Charters--have chartered from them for several years now, each time on a different boat. They don't have all new boats (some are, some aren't), but the prices reflect that. In addition, the boats are generally well-maintained and equipped. The website gives you the list of ammenities, and the couple who manages the company are very helpful with things like telling you which boats are better than others for your needs.

Haven's not the fleet of all new boats type of place, but that's what we like about them.
