Captain Larry treats passengers to both his seafaring and culinary skills, piloting the Wharf Rat along the shores of the Chesapeake Bay as dinner guests enjoy a three-course meal. Guests can have the unique experience of helping catch the breeze at the helm of the 40’, 18T sailboat. The sunset meal starts with appetizers, usually includes a barbecue course, and finishes with something sweet. Brunch guests also get multiple courses, with much of the produce used coming directly from the Captain’s own private garden. Check the calendar for specific cruising dates.

Atlantic Sailing Experience

Under the steady hand of Coast Guard-licensed captain Larry Vazzano, the Wharf Rat slices through the blue waters of Chesapeake Bay. The intimate vessel's sails harness the breeze, turning this way and that above the heads of passengers to find the best angle to the wind. Its decks bustle with activity of guests helping prepare sails or taking the helm as well as relaxed onlookers enjoying the unique view. Meanwhile, viewed from the cockpit dining table, the sun reaches its zenith and glitters off the peaks of waves, or dips slowly behind the forested shoreline, dyeing the whole world in orange, red, and purple.

Captain Larry loves this experience––the Atlantic Sailing Experience, as he calls it––so much that he's shared it with over 600 guests. In addition to his nautical know-how, he shows off his prowess at the grill for brunch and dinner, churning out tasty barbecue and vegetable sides from his own garden. Of course, he doesn't just sail and eat. He also charters his ship for exciting sailboat races and the occasional voyage to the end of the Earth.
