Perfect evening for sailing, beautiful sunset, great boat, and Captain Mark was the best.

We has a wonderful time recently with Captain Mark and First (and only) Mate Suzanne. This was our second trip with them, after a gap of a few years, and it was as delightful as before. They were kind and helpful when our out-of-town friend's six-year-old got a little seasick and thought he would throw up (he didn't!). We plan another trip with Mark and Suzanne soon. Their service is one of the nicest features of a nice town.

- Rick Curtsinger - Washington, D.C., Monday, October 15, 2012

- Linda - Baltimore, MD, Friday, July 06, 2012
A great sail. It was a very hot day, but very comfortable on the water. The captain and crew were very hospitable and enjoyed showing off their community. Rock Hall is a bit of a hike, but a nice little town.
- Dan - Washington, Tuesday, July 03, 2012
Had a great time sailing with Captain Mark and Mate Suzanne. Everything was so perfect.
- Ed - Valley Lee, Tuesday, June 26, 2012
My daughter and I had the most enjoyable sailing experience last Sunday with Captain Mark and his first mate Suzanne. It was a beautiful evening and the sunset was spectacular. Captain Mark timed the crescendo of Taichovsky perfectly as the last bit of sun descended over the water. The weather was perfect and Mark and Suzanne make it a most memorable experience with their pleasant, friendly demeanor. I highly recommend this experience to others.
- Marc Dapas - Washington, D.C., Sunday, June 17, 2012
Captain Mark runs a good show. We had a nice sail on a beautiful evening with well timed music to cap off the sunset. We would recommend this and plan on doing it again.
- Matt - Chesapeake Bay, Wednesday, June 13, 2012
We had a wonderful time on this sailing adventure. Captian Mark and Suzanne were amazing. This is definitely an amazing way to see the sunset over the Baltimore skyline, and a fun way to spend time with your loved one. I would definitely do this again.
- Bri Calaman - Carlisle, PA, Sunday, June 03, 2012
I booked this as a gift for my then fiance as a christmas present. Unfortunately, we could not make the date last year because my father passed away. A year later we were still able to make the trip. Mark and Suzanne were very accomodating and friendly. It was a calming sailing experience.
- Tiffany - Gaithersburg, MD, Monday, November 21, 2011
We had an awesome time sailing the Chesapeake Bay out of Rock Hall, Maryland. We often cruise the bay in our powerboat but not too often in a sailboat. The water was a little rough with the impending hurricane, but we had a wonderful time and lots of wind to fill the sails! Thank you for a great time.
- Tom and Laural Kretzer - Rock Hall, MD, Monday, October 17, 2011
We had a wonderful experience with Captain Mark and his boat sailing out of Rock Hall, MD.
- Jane Lewis - Rock Hall, Monday, October 17, 2011
Mark and Suzanne were perfect hosts! They know how to make their guests relax and have fun. We were able to bring champagne on the boat, take lots of photos, and enjoy a gorgeous sunset. They even let my boyfriend surprise me with a proposal on the boat! Thanks for a wonderful experience!
- LO - Rock Hall, MD, Tuesday, September 13, 2011
I enjoyed it.
- Somer White - Baltimore, Monday, August 29, 2011
Captain Mark and his wife were lovely hosts for our evening boat ride. They were both beyond friendly and warm, but still had a very professional demeanor. The night and weather were perfect, though I know that's really beyond anyone's control. We wish we had arranged to spend the night out in Rock Hill, but it was still a doable drive after having a late dinner at the restaurant where you board. Definitely a great experience!
- Sarah R. - Washington, DC, Wednesday, August 24, 2011
I absolutely loved this experience! It was such a wonderful romantic getaway that I would recommend for anyone! The captain was very friendly and made the experience very enjoyable!

- JR - Alexandria, Virginia, Monday, July 18, 2011
Most excellent, despite a weather snafu! Captain Mark was very accommodating, pleasant and knowledgeable. With our originally scheduled trip postponed due to Mother Nature, Captain Mark worked with us to ensure that the experience was terrific.
- Mike Oesterling - Rock Hall, MD, Tuesday, July 12, 2011

- Greg - Baltimore, MD, Wednesday, June 01, 2011
Beautiful! Captain Mark and Suzanne were great! My girls were at the helm and used the antique spy glass to look for pirates. It was quiet, serene, and stunningly beautiful. Wonderful memories which will live on forever. If only they could figure out how to outlaw power boats on the bay!
- The Lilyestrom Family - Rock Hall, MD, Tuesday, October 05, 2010
Wonderful, relaxing experience - definitely exceeded all of our expectations!

- Claude - Upper Marlboro MD, Thursday, September 09, 2010
We really enjoyed our sailing excursion Saturday evening. The weather was good, even though we did not have enough wind to really sail, the crew did their best to ensure we had wonderful views of the sunset and the surrounding areas.
- Keith & Bonnie - Westminster, MD, Wednesday, September 01, 2010
This was the perfect gift for my boyfriends birthday. Captain Mark and Susan were amazing and we had a great time.
- Melissa and Erv - Rock Hall, MD, Tuesday, July 20, 2010
Absolutely in awe the moment we arrived at the dock. We got caught in traffic and arrived a tad bit later than expected. They tried calling us but we did not receive the calls until we parked. By the time we had called them back, they had already pulled off but came back to get us and it was amazing. Mark and 1st mate, Suzanne, were great hosts and they made my boyfriend's 1st ride on a yacht a memorable one. We loved the people we experienced it with as well. Thanks again and we will be doing this again in the future!!!!!
- Melissa Burford - Washington, DC, Sunday, July 18, 2010

As a third year anniversary present, we received an Xperience Days certificate for a sunset sailing cruise for two on the Chesapeake Bay. From the moment we arrived in Rock Hall, we found ourselves in awe at the beauty of the bay and the hospitality of our hosts. The sail was magnificent - much better than we ever could have imagined. We look forward to a new annual tradition of sailing with Blue Crab Charters and relaxing on the bay.
- Bill and Eileen - Philadelphia, Tuesday, December 01, 2009
Wonderful, beautiful day. Weather was perfect, Captain Mark and Suzanne were very nice. One recommendation: Perhaps a bag of chips or nuts to go with the drinks! Of course, we wished it hadn't ended so soon - would have enjoyed another hour or two!
- Tammy & Les Johnson - Rock Hall, MD, Friday, October 02, 2009
