Nathan of Dorchester SkipJack

The Nathan of Dorchester offers visitors a unique opportunity to experience the vanishing skipjack heritage of Maryland's Eastern Shore. Since the 1880s, skipjacks have sailed the Chesapeake Bay. While there once were as many as 800 or more of these beautiful vessels, today fewer than two dozen of the original dredge boats remain. Only a handful still dredge for oysters, the last remnant of America's only surviving commercial sailing fleet.
