Among a few Marinas in Deale, MD, there's this one down the street from our family. Of course they have a boat there. Nothing like a relaxing tour by boat of Chesapeake Bay or the excitement of crabbing.... even when you don't have a boat.
to Harbour Cove Marina:
From 495 (Capital Beltway) take Exit 11 (Pennsylvania Avenue - Rt. 4) toward Upper Marlboro. Follow Rt. 4 for approximately 10 miles to Rt. 258 (Deale Exit). Follow 258 until it ends at Rt. 256. Turn right onto 256 and then right on Cabana Blvd (at Wheeler's Hardware) to Harbour Cove entrance.
Happy fishing or crabbing!
Boating, fishing, crabbing ... are favorites here!
You can get some really great crabs from the Chesapeake. They are the Maryland Blue Crab.
Although most small boats are ideal for reaching crabbing areas, almost any bank, bulkhead, bridge or pier bordering tidal waters can provide excellent crabbing.
Deale is about 30 miles southeast of Baltimore & 30 miles east of Washington & 15 miles south of Annapolis.

This is a nice quiet country town on the Chesapeake Bay. My daughter and husband bought a home here a couple of years ago. I have only gotten down there once, but hope to go back again and get some good pictures this time, as well as get out on their boat. My daughter works at the Marina.
Fondest memory: Visiting family of course! Here's a picture I took while standing in their front yard and the view they have of Chesapeake Bay. It was taken during the winter and I probably had a better view because of it. Just beyond those bare trees, you can see water.
