Miss Bea is a 22' C-Dory requiring only 18 inches of water to navigate. This makes her ideal for exploring the sometimes shallow water of our river system. Her cabin keeps you out of the sun on hot days or if it starts to rain, keeps you dry. You can also relax in the stern and enjoy the open air.
Miss Sea is a 19' center console Sea Hunt with comfortable cushioned seating in the open bow and stern. She has a large bimini top that provides shade, keeping you cool and comfortable. An onboard stereo system makes the ride that much more enjoyable and our Captain will even let you connect to your own mobile device to listen to your personal musical selections.
The boats are outfitted with all Coast Guard required safety equipment and are inspected annually by the Coast Guard Auxiliary.

Custom Private Charters
A private charter lets you go where you want and stay as long as you want. Choose Miss Bea or Miss Sea and engage a charter for house hunting, newlywed transportation or any other boating excursion. Charters typically launch from the Washington waterfront, but can also launch from Bath, Cotton Patch Landing or at another mutually agreed upon dock. Reservations are suggested, but if boat is available, no reservation needed.
