Welcome to the new Sailing Season! And come on down to Solomons Island in Southern Maryland for a schooner sail on the Chesapeake Bay!

Schooner Heron Charters will have a  day rate of $750 for wkdays, wkends, and holidays!


For a party of six: a wonderful afternoon sailing on the Bay aboard the beautiful 60-foot staysail Schooner Heron, with Captain. Charter folks will bring their own food and drinks in their own coolers with ice.

Nothing on the Bay can compare with this amazing offer!

A short 50-minute drive south of the DC Beltway puts you in a place where the land meets the sea and opportunities for excitement and relaxation abound.

Enhance your recreational get-away to Southern Maryland by taking a 5-HOUR sail aboard our custom built French staysail schooner, Heron. She's 60-feet long with an expansive flush deck and cockpit, so there's plenty of room to move about, work the boat, and relax. You can't even begin to compare the comfort and room aboard Heron with 40' sailboats, where you will most likely be stuck, shoulder to shoulder, in the cockpit.   

Captain Aram Nersesian will give your party of six the kind of sailing day that YOU want. Help with the sail handling and steering, or sit back and relax. You may even want to head up the Patuxent River to tie up at Vera's Restaurant, enjoy a meal, and delight in a river cruise home. If there's a strong breeze, you will enjoy a hearty and robust day on the Bay. If the wind is mild, relish the peacefulness and beauty of the natural environment.

Take the standard 5-hour sail, study our "Cruise Ideas," or be creative and come up with your own suggestions.

And while you're in Solomons, partake of the local food and drink... and of course, there are accommodations galore to extend your Southern Maryland escape. The Tiki Bar! The Calvert Marine Museum! There's plenty to do and see.

Come sailing with us, and for just a little while,
throw your cares to the wind!
