Call Maryland Tourism (1-800-543-1036) or contact the Talbot County Chamber of Commerce (410-822-4606) for a schedule of events in St. Michaels—crab festivals, skipjack races, and the like—and for a list of nearby inns, many of which overlook the water. The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is open daily (except Thanksgiving and Christmas) from mid-March through December and only on weekends from January to mid-March. Its newest building, devoted to steam power, houses an eighteen-foot working compound steam engine from the 1924 tugboat W. J. Harahan ; it would make a warm, dry port in a storm.

We hope you enjoy our work.
