From fuel to pool, we’ve got boaters covered. Talbot County is located at the very center of the East Coast, our waters fed by the Atlantic Ocean and the Chesapeake Bay. Our boatyards are renown for their world-class maintenance, repair and service crews. And our marinas are prized for their many amenities, such as restaurants, spas, and the close proximity to our lively towns and villages.

Boaters—and those who love the life on the water — have ranked this among their favorites for generations.  The pristine waterfront offers spectacular views of beach, marsh, fields, and forests, along with historic mansions.

Talbot County is always upping its game. Those traversing the Chesapeake Bay will be thrilled to know that the Army Corp of Engineers recently dredged Knapps Narrows, the channel that separates Tilghman Island from the mainland and provides a welcome shortcut to Oxford.  Plus, Talbot County offers two (free) waterfront trail maps that will make your exploration of the area’s waterways a dream. You can find them at

It’s no surprise that many high quality waterfront events take place here, including the 2018 Star World Championship sailing regatta that will draw the best sailors from around the world. These races will be hosted by the Tred Avon Yacht Club in Oxford from October 5-15, 2018.

Whether you have a yacht or a powerboat, you’ll find a comfortable home here. The area boasts many full-service marinas and high quality maintenance facilities, historic towns, and waterfront attractions.

Don’t have your own boat?  No problem. The nautical lifestyle isn’t reserved for those captaining their own boats.  Talbot County is home to many outfitters who can provide kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards for the day so visitors can explore the waterfront.  Plentiful gentle tributaries and rivers mean you need not power through to experience the best of what the area offers. Paddling allows you to slow down and soak in the natural wonders.  

For visitors looking for a waterfront experience without breaking a sweat, no worries.  We’ve got you covered. Sailboats, yachts and working fishing boats can guide you along Talbot County’s waterways.  Or you can hop aboard The Oxford-Bellevue Ferry, the country’s oldest continuously operating ferry, which this year happens to be celebrating its 335th anniversary.  For just a few dollars you can board the ferry—on foot or with your car— and cross the Tred Avon River from the scenic small town of Oxford to the charming hamlet of Bellevue as you take in wide water views, along with glimpses of heron, osprey and bald eagles.

To learn more about the water, the people who work it and the boats that that ply it, head to The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, one of the finest of its kind in the world.  While there, you can explore a distinctive screwpile lighthouse to get a sense of the spartan and difficult life lighthouse keepers led. And for a hands-on experience, you can even participate in a restoration of a vintage vessel in an “Apprentice For A Day” program.

And no matter what you do, don’t miss a chance to dine at one of Talbot County’s fabulous restaurants, where you can enjoy the fresh crab, oysters, rockfish, skate, and other seafood plucked straight from the water surrounding you.
