We opted for the Sunset Champagne Cruise. It was a perfect evening.More than enough wind to be able to sail. Captain Jeff and the first mate(his young son) were very knowledgeable and hospitable. Margaritas and champagne made the evening that much more relaxing! The sunset was magnificent! This is a must if you are in the area!

We took the "Sunset Champagne Cruise" provided by Captain Jeff and his crew aboard the Lady Patty during our visit from Seattle. To say it was romantic was an understatement! Jeff and Sara, his first mate could not have been more accommodating. Serving up drinks and sailing lore grounded in decades of experience, the cruise could not have been more... More

What an amazing way to experience the countless colors of the sunset over the Chesapeake Bay- on a historic sailboat with good friends, delicious drinks and a friendly captain and crew. Can't wait to return to the Lady Patty for another perfect sail!

Captain Jeff and his first mate Emma were so accomplished and at ease with the sailboat that I felt as if I were floating on a cloud at times. Prone to seasickness, I always approach any smaller sized boat with a bit of trepidation-- so Jeff's expert maneuvering of his craft was simply a slice of heaven for me on... More

I scheduled a Saturday evening sunset cruise. I messed up the time and missed our sail. Capt Jeff fit us in Sunday morning for an amazing sail around the entire island. Super nice people. You can't go wrong with the beautiful Lady Patty.

There were ten of us and we had the boat to ourselves. The ride was beautiful. The captain Jeff and his first mate Emma could not have been more pleasant. Very congenial and knowledgable . It was a wonderful smooth sail.

We were on Tilghman Island for an anniversary trip and wanted to do something "nautical" so after reading the reviews and getting a recommendation from a local innkeeper we choose to book with the Lady Patty. We went out for a two hour morning sail. The captain Jeff and first mate Emma were very friendly and lots of fun. They... More
