  • Great place for public water access - two piers out into back creek for fishing, crabbing, bird watching, photography, etc. You can see the Bay Bridge and Chesapeake Bay from here. Inside you will find fun history from the waterman days of Eastport. It is also a great place to host an event. There are 3 historic boats on the premises. Don't forget to check out Wild Country Seafood closeby.
  • It is not fair to people in the community that have been leaving here for years not to be able to go to a public beach, because of a wedding. The beach is not apart of the Maritime.
  • Nice, small, historic place.
  • This small museum is a gem. There is not only the story of oysters as an important economic influence, but the numerous hands on exhibits of the boats used to harvest them. They also have local art displayed. From their dock you will get a great view of Back Creek, the towers on Greenbury Point, and Chesapeake Bay. Unique place to have a picnic.
