Nathan BowCome Sail With Us on the
Skipjack Nathan of Dorchester!

Enjoy an Unforgettable Sail on a Chesapeake Bay Skipjack.

Experience the vanishing skipjack heritage of Maryland's Eastern Shore as we sail and dredge for oysters.

Our sailing season runs from May through October.

See our PUBLIC SAIL schedule of two-hour afternoon sails most Saturdays in season.

CHARTERS on the skipjack provide a unique venue for any occasion or celebration.

The Nathan was built by volunteers and launched on the Fourth of July, 1994. She is the last of the Bay's skipjacks built to be a dredge boat, and still is owned, operated, crewed and maintained by volunteers from the nonprofit Dorchester Skipjack Committee.
