Tour Guide for Nature Charters

There are still a few remaining remote places on the Chesapeake Bay that are accessible only by water. These remaining gems have not been spoiled by over development and still offer wide open views and act as nature preserves. I’ve been visiting these areas for over 30 years and witnessed firsthand the shorelines disappearing over time. The Bay has lost places like Sharps Island and will continue to threaten these areas and history will repeat itself. The L & T is unique in that it can access these areas and get us close to the shorelines allowing us to look for Shore Birds, Pelicans, Bald Eagles, Terrapins and other wildlife. Or we can dock at small fishing villages/towns on the Bay that look like they’ve been forgotten by time. I hope you are just as curious to see these places as I am to show you. Book a trip before time washes these places away.

This type of trip allows us the luxury of time to talk about the larger ecosystem of the Chesapeake Bay. There is a life cycle around the iconic Rockfish and Blue Crabs and the ecological benefits of the variety of oysters and clams. Then there is the threat of non-native invasive plants and animals along with man made threats. This is a complex system that has many lessons to teach us.
