Capt. Rachel Dean from Solomons Island Heritage Tours teaches clients about oystering.

Live the waterman’s life as you tong for oysters, pull crab pots and cull crabs from the Bay, aboard a “deadrise,” the Bay’s traditional working fishing vessel. Find out what it’s like to rise before the sun and work the waters to bring in the day’s harvest, preparing it for market. Hear tales about the history of the Bay’s fishing industry, the plans in place to keep it thriving, and your role in helping this traditional livelihood stay afloat.
