The Cruise, The Crab, The Cake - Smith Island, MD

 

Arrive in Crisfield, MD. Enjoy a little free time before we board the boat to Smith Island. This small quaint town is known as the “Crabmeat Capitol of the World” because of the abundance and quality of blue crabs and soft crabs. Next, we will board the Chelsea Lane Tyler for a narrated tour to Smith Island, the last inhabited island off Maryland’s Coast with a population of 300 people. Many residents are direct descendants if the English settlers as a result of John Smith’s discovery of the island 1608. Today residents speak Maryland English. But I you spend a little more time here you may hear them speak a native Cornish English. Hungry?? Upon debarking the ship, we will proceed to The Bayside Inn for a traditional mid-day supper. Get ready to dine on a tradional family style meal consisting of a crabcake, clam fritters, ham ,corn, stewed tomatoes, green beans, homemade coleslaw, macaroni salad, rolls and butter, non alcoholic drink. The special treat of the day Smith Island Cake!! Since 1800 this cake has been baked by women to give to their husbands when they would go out to sea for the fall oyster harvest. This delicacy consists of between 9-12 layers. Wait till you taste it! This cake and local seafood are available for purchase so come prepared with your cooler. After lunch you will have time to discover the island on your own. Golf cart rentals are available to tool around the 3X5 mile island. They say by the year 2300 the land will be completely submerged.
