Kent County

Quaint waterfront towns, including historic Chestertown, Rock Hall, Galena, Betterton, and Millington, offer sunset cruise charters, small beaches, kayaking, fishing charters, boating, sailing, museums, theaters, art galleries, brick sidewalk shopping, antiquing, farmers and artisans markets, local seafood (including the Chesapeake Bay blue crab), Maryland’s second largest collection of 18th century structures, and more.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFishing has long been a tradition on the Eastern Shore, and includes crabbing and oystering. For those without boats of their own, charters for fishing can be arranged out of Rock Hall and Chestertown, or rowboats can be rented in season near the Eastern Neck Wildlife Preserve. Fishing can also be done from the banks of streams and rivers, from public landings and jetties, from bridges, and on inland lakes.

Our enchanting coastline varies from historic waterfront towns dotted with marinas of all sizes to stretches of low, rolling farmlands broken only by the tidewater tributaries of the Chesapeake. This land, where fresh and salt water meet, is a veritable haven for fishing and boating enthusiasts, cyclists, birders, and nature lovers. It is also an immense refuge for a variety of plant and animal life, and we make every attempt to protect them. With public lands open to hunters, and direct access to the Chesapeake Bay, Kent County has everything a sportsman could ask for.
