Sail Selina II: What better way to explore the Chesapeake Bay than on a 1926 sailboat? The Selina II is a classic New England Crosby Cat designed boat, and treats guests to an old fashioned sailing experience. The ship takes daily two-hour cruises around the Bay, but for something special, reserve a spot on the Sunset Champagne Cruise. Listen to Captain Iris describe the waterfront and the history of St. Michaels, then sip on Champagne (or the drink of your choice) and sample hors d’oeuvres as the sun dips below the water. Champagne Cruises start at $65 per person (limit of six), daily sails cost $50 per person. Cash discounts are available.
