Set sail on the colorful 35-foot Sea Dragon for a fishing outing fashioned for families. Chris Hendershot and Samantha Polizzi launched Family Fishing Adventures in Annapolis last summer to take anglers along the Chesapeake Bay and Spa Creek. The 90-minute trip begins with a nickname for each passenger (think Big Tuna or Sea Dog Sophia). Capt. Chris—aka Capt. Reel—teaches kids how to use bait, lures and a fishing rod and reel, and where to drop (and later retrieve) crab traps. He also shares tidbits on Maryland’s fishing culture, marine life and ideas for helping to preserve and protect the Chesapeake Bay. While the outings are kid-oriented, parents and teens can fish, too.

Daily sailings are offered May 6 through Labor Day at 9:15 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:45 p.m. and 4 p.m. Weekend sailings continue through October. Reserve in advance. $20; $16 for kids ages 5 and under.
