Tangier Island Cruises of Crisfield, MD (W41)
1001 W Main St, Crisfield, MD 21817

Looking for a way to get to Tangier Island but DO NOT want to take your airplane there for whatever reason, or just do NOT feel like flying over that much water to an island destination?

Land at friendly W41 Airport, take BIG CITY CAB to the docks, and take the awesome Tangier Island Cruise to the island via the good ship Steven Thomas for less than $20 each way!

It is about a 80 minute cruise each way, and you are assured to see wildlife, fish, and other interesting boats out on the Bay. It is a very smooth ride with an inside, air-conditioned large cabin with drink service!

This is another great way to see and experience Tangier Island! Stay for the day or the weekend! The owners are very flexible and supportive of your group plans as well - contact them.

I took a large group over to Tangier Island from 14-20 June and this was the best way to go!

Background:

Chart a course back in time to the small, picturesque island of Tangier.
 
Once visited by  John Smith in 1608, the island has changed little since it was first settled by John Crockett in 1686. Along the way, you’ll see some of the most beautiful scenery the Chesapeake Bay and Tangier Sound have to offer. As the boat makes the 14 mile trip out to the island, you'll see the chain of islands that form the Tangier Sound and the waterfowl that inhabit the bay. You’ll learn the history of the other islands namely Fox Island, Watts Island, and Port Isobel.
 
Upon arrival, you'll discover a way of life quickly disappearing from America. Browse the quaint town with its narrow streets designed for walking or cycling, mingle with the island natives, and enjoy the peace and tranquility this one mile by three island offers. Stroll by the lone school that provides classes for kindergarten through high school, then wander out to the one of four different restaurants to eat some great seafood. Spend time relaxing by the dock watching the crab boats come and go from the harbor.
 
Tangier Island has a population of about 600 people, most of whom speak a unique English Restoration era dialect of American English. The island was once inhabited by farmers but became a fishing community in the 1800’s when the Chesapeake Bay was first harvested for its crabs and oysters. The people of today’s Tangier Island, survive with a livelihood wrenched by the unpredictable waters of the Chesapeake Bay.
 
A visit to Tangier Island is unlike any place you’ve ever experienced. Come with us as we step back in time…
