Mid-Atlantic yacht charters offer a mix of history and excellent gunkholing. The best time of year for yacht charter in the Mid-Atlantic is from April to October.
The Mid-Atlantic region of the US lies between New England and the South, centered on Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia. With many historical sites and a lengthy coastline that includes Chesapeake Bay, the mid-Atlantic region provides excellent cruising over a long season. The waters stay warm late into the year, and many "snowbirds" fleeing the cold of New England will linger here on their way to a winter getaway further south.
The Chesapeake Bay is relatively shallow, but the soft-mud bottom is forgiving. It's well worth risking a grounding or two to experience the natural scenery and quiet towns and villages that populate the Eastern Shore. Historic Annapolis, the crown jewel of the Mid-Atlantic, is the logical base for a cruise on the Chesapeake Bay, and bareboat and crewed charters are available on a variety of craft.
