    Deal Island is an historic fishing village on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

    It is an ideal location for sport fishing, kayaking, biking, hunting and birdwatching.   There is a free public boat ramp, conveniently located just behind the cottage, in picturesque Wenona Harbor. 

    For lunch and dinner be sure to visit Shedder's in Wenona or Lucky's in Chance.

    FISHERMAN'S PARADISE                                                                                      

    The fishing in Tangier Sound is rewarding, with anglers bringing in a large variety of fish, including Striped Bass (or Rockfish).  A number of charter fishing boats run out of Wenona Harbor.

    Wenona is a real waterman's harbor where you can buy fish, crabs and oysters (in season) right off the boats.  Bring your own boat and trailer and you can spend the days fishing and the nights relaxing at the cottage. Boaters cruising the Chesapeake be sure to add the Wenona Harbor to your itinerary. 

    The Skipjack is the Maryland State Boat

    Deal Island is home to some of the only remaining historic Skipjacks.  These majestic boats still sail for their daily catch of oysters from September to April and you won't want to miss the Annual Skipjack Race and Festival held each Labor Day.  

    Come and visit the Skipjack "KATHRYN" as she is being restored. 
    And you can Help!
    You will get a one night, 25% discount on one of our rooms for each 5 hours you volunteer to work on the "Kathryn".

    Or make arrangements to take a cruise on the "HILDA M WILLING" sailing out of Deal Island Harbor.

    Summer is crab season, when you can enjoy a day on the water, catch your own Maryland crabs, and bring them home for dinner.  Steam them in Old Bay Seasoning and beer, and enjoy eating your catch at the large picnic table on the screened-in lower deck.  


    The Deal Island Wildlife Management area is a sanctuary for birds and other wildlife and provides ideal areas for birding and canoeing.  You can hike the marked trails or paddle your kayak through the marshes.  Or bike from the cottage to the refuge and enjoy the sights along the way. Bring your own bikes and kayaks....or use ours.  We have two bikes and two kayaks available for rent.
