June Weeklong

I hope you join us for the trip to the great North. We are trying something, rarely done with NC3. We are heading north. Don’t worry, we have studied and verified that the world is round and that you will not fall off the edge of the planet, if you sail beyond the Northern boundaries of the Chesapeake Bay. Not only that you can actually swim off your boat without being stung by sea nettles by heading north.

Once in Delaware City we will take a day and head over to Fort Delaware. Situated on Pea Patch Island in the middle of the Delaware River, Fort Delaware was initially constructed in the mid-1800s to protect Wilmington and Philadelphia from enemy attack. Fort Delaware served that role through WWI. The fort was among the most state-of-the-art in the nation when it was completed and housed prisoners of war during the Civil War due to its relative isolation. Within the walls of Fort Delaware, visitors can also see Battery Torbert. Along the Prison Camp Trail lies the entrance to the mine casemate that controlled the mines that were deployed in the river in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The Pea Patch Heronry is one of the largest mixed species nest colony for herons, egrets, and ibis in the eastern United States. Other nesters that can be found on the island include osprey and bald eagles. Paranormal tours are offered in the fall and living history interpretation is offered year-round.

Sign up early as there may be a limit on how many boats we can take on this trip.
