  • Shallow Creek Kayaks, LLC
    Wanting to share their love of the area's natural beauty and its peaceful waterways, James Wolf and Kelly Mack established Shallow Creek Kayaks in the summer of 2012. The pair has since built a robust roster of new, brightly colored, and easy-to-paddle single and tandem kayaks, which it delivers to locations within a 30-mile radius of Shallow Creek—including many Baltimore-area launch sites. Shallow Creek Kayaks also has accessories available, including paddles and life vests.

  • Ultimate Watersports
    Chesapeake Bay is home to legendary beautiful waters, diverse flora and fauna, and Paddlefest, an annual paddle-sports event organized by the team at Ultimate Watersports. Held on the Gunpowder River, which flows into the bay, the festival shows off the industry's latest toys, allowing attendees to try out brand-new kayaks and paddleboards on the sparkling fresh water. For the rest of the season, Ultimate Watersports brings its know-how to the shores with kayak tours, paddleboard lessons, and sailing trips that have remained a bay fixture for more than 26 years. Waterfront enthusiasts seek out the company's reliably well-maintained and up-to-date watercraft to do everything from gain a windsurfing certification to practice heckling standup paddleboard comics. Additionally, seasonal kids' camps help youngsters to stay active while gaining an appreciation for watersports and the splendor of the outdoors.

  • Island View Waterfront Cafe
    Cuisine Type: American casual, seafood Established: 1969 Reservations: Optional Handicap Accessible: Yes Number of Tables: 25–50 Parking: Parking lot Most popular offering: Maryland crabcakes, crab pretzels, scallops Kid-friendly: Yes Alcohol: Full bar Delivery/Takeout Available: Takeout only Outdoor Seating: Yes Q&A with Bryan Laing, Owner In your own words, how would you describe your menu? [It's an] American-casual menu with many seafood options and classic dishes; [there are] no crazy or hyped-up ingredients. What is one of your most popular offerings? How is it prepared? Our crab cakes are the most popular and, along with our crab soups, are the oldest recipe. We've been featured on a Maryland public-television special about the best crab cakes in the Baltimore/Maryland area. What is one fun, unusual fact about your business? The building was built in 1928 as a dancehall and picnic grove for [the] residents of Baltimore to enjoy. There was also a speakeasy in the basement during Prohibition. The dance floor is still [the] original. Also, we have one of the oldest liquor licenses in Baltimore County. [It was] issued when Prohibition ended. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? The property is on a point overlooking the Chesapeake Bay. The cove for kayaking is a protected calm-water cove with a sandy bottom. There are beautiful sunsets, Chesapeake Bay wildlife, ospreys, and bald eagles for sight seeing.

  • Terrapin Adventures
    Terrapin Adventures never fails to live up to its name—even their swing set gets the stomach fluttering with excitement. To be fair, though, the swing in question is anything but the traditional apparatus you'd find at a city park. It seats three people and starts its trajectory 40 feet above the ground, generating 2Gs of force as it swishes riders back and forth over the landscape. The park's other attractions are equally exhilarating. On the high ropes course, visitors attached to sturdy safety harnesses cross 18 traverses situated between lofty platforms; some must be tackled via a rickety bridge, while others require leaps of faith. The 43-foot high climbing tower offers 10 routes up and down, including a head-first downward climb over the Rainbow Serpent. Otherwise, the 330-foot-long zipline sends visitors gliding through the treetops at speeds of up to 20 mph, fast enough to beat the USA track team's star squirrel.

  • Kayak Annapolis
    When Pete and Kate Vonderheide moved from Hawaii to Annapolis to live closer to their family, they thought they'd have to give up a career of ocean kayaking to resume responsible office jobs. Soon they recognized the historic city harbor's lack of kayak tours and knew they couldn't stay inside forever. Their shared passion for history spurred them to research and interview the locals until they'd compiled enough historic material to start leading tours. Today, their tours can teach something new even to locals. The Vonderheides continue to assemble a team of outdoor guides certified in CPR and first aid who all bear a well-researched knowledge of area wildlife and history. These experts lead two-hour scenic tours through the historic harbor. Starting each excursion with a brief paddling lesson, they put first-timers at ease with basic instruction and an amiable demeanor, unlike guides who rely only on their convincing Captain Ahab impressions. Excursions begin at the Spa Creek headwaters in Truxtun Park and lead participants into open-harbor waters to drift in full view of the state capitol building, the US Naval Academy, and historic Eastport. Trips peak at the City Dock, where participants receive a break to take photos and rest. On the return trip, guides field open-ended questions about city history such as presidential visits, the crabbing and oystering trade, and whether George Washington had to swim using floaties.
