Where you’ll be

Smith Island, Maryland, United States

Where is Tylerton, Smith Island? Just a short ferry ride from Crisfield, Maryland- travel back in time with your family and friends to this quaint and blissfully quiet traditional waterman's village. Enjoy kayaking, boating, hiking, fishing, crabbing, harvesting oysters, beachcombing (called "progging" by the locals), biking or simply taking long contemplative walks along the water. For hunters and fisherman, there is some of the best duck hunting and fishing on the East Coast! Amateurs can also fish or crab right off the public dock, or you can hire a local waterman to take you out on the water (see "Other Things to Note" section for contacts).

Visit the local Drum Point Market for the world's absolute best crab cakes, or take a stroll along the crab shanty dock and visit local toy and craftmakers. Visit the famous crab picking coop, and play baseball, soccer and lacrosse and fly kites on the baseball field. Explore the incredible Pelican Rookery (right out of National Geographic!) and take a trip to a crab shanty to learn how hard shell crabs become soft shells! Spend time leisurely talking to locals all about the island's history and their life on the island. Become an honorary Junior Fire Fighter at the local fire station, or just spend luxurious hours sitting on the dock, watching the tide ebb and flow, and eventually, the spectacular setting sun. Then watch in awe as the dark night sky comes alive with thousands of brilliantly beaming stars just for you!
