Boating Adventure Extra 

Skipjack Boat Races 


The host of many Potomac River fishing tournaments, Southern Maryland’s Smallwood State Park lets you cast from the shore or take advantage of boat slips and stationary piers at the park’s Sweden Point Marina. Nearby Mallows Bay incorporates a vast “ghost fleet” of sunken vessels and is reachable only by shallow draft watercraft. From there, pick up the trail of “Diamond Jim” – the legendary rockfish with a diamond-studded tag affixed to its jaw – in the Chesapeake Beach area.

Charter Boats
Knowledgeable captains are ready to steer you toward fishing hot spots. Choose from a sailboat, powerboat, catamaran, schooner or skipjack. Extend your visit with a lighthouse trip, history tour, ecological exploration or champagne sunset cruise. Learn more at the Maryland Charter Boat Association Web site,
