Chartering the Chesapeake

What makes the Chesapeake Bay special is its configuration. It has as much coastline as the entire continental United States. The Bay was formed, as glaciers from the last Ice Age began to melt, carving streams and rivers that flowed toward the coast.  As the sea level rose, it submerged the area now known as the Susquehanna River Valley. This drowned river valley became the Chesapeake Bay.  The Bay has hundreds of creeks, coves and quiet headwaters that offer endless exploration.  It is also one of the largest estuaries in the world; all of which means great sailing for you.
