• Hooper Island Lighthouse
• Point No Point Lighthouse

cost of lunch, midway through the cruise with a stop at Smith Island for a family-style seafood meal.

Information and details for making reservations are available at Sawyer Fishing Charters & Chesapeake Bay Tours, 410-397-3743.

Words of Praise….According to Challengers who took this

cruise in 2011,

it is a FANTASTIC day out on the Bay that Challengers won’t want to miss! Captain Dave couldn’t be more knowledgeable and accommodating to his guests. We are pleased to welcome him “aboard” again for this year’s event!

NOTE: The BONUS lighthouses and Bonus cruise are optional attractions. Although they are not required stops along the Challenge route, we highly recommend them for your viewing pleasure and to round out your Maryland Lighthouse Challenge adventure. Visiting any of the Bonus attractions will, of course, earn participants extra Challenge souvenirs.
