Miles River Paddling Program August 9

On Thursday, August 9, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) in St. Michaels, MD is hosting a kayak paddling program along the scenic Miles River for a limited number of participants. Offered in partnership with Sultana Projects, the program launches from CBMM’s waterfront campus at 9:30am and is scheduled to return by 12noon. Kayaks will be provided, or participants can bring their own.

Sultana Vice President and Naturalist Chris Cerino will take paddlers through 400 years of history from Miles Point— where Native Americans once lived, to the bustling St. Michaels harbor of today. Paddlers will learn about St. Michaels landmarks and history, in addition to exploring the underwater life of nearby creeks, marshes, and beaches.

The cost is $35 per person, with pre-registration needed. Children ages 12 and up are welcome to participate, when accompanied by an adult in a personal tandem kayak. To register or for more information, contact Helen Van Fleet at 410-745-4941, or visit
