Life on the Chesapeake Bay according to a Tangier Island waterman, "It is not an easy way of life. In fact, it is a true labor of love. 
Commercial fishing and crabbing for the Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab is physical and demanding, but it is the love for the Chesapeake Bay, its wildlife, and its beauty that makes it worth all the aches and pains we live with each day".

Rain or Shine, Tangier Island awaits you! 
A great time, anytime............
