Step aboard Maryland Dove, experience what life was like for a sailor during the 17th century. A visit to the Waterfront at Historic St. Mary’s City reveals how waterways, and those who navigated them, linked Maryland’s colonists to the rest of the world.
A few times each year Maryland Dove does travel away from its home port at Historic St. Mary’s City for outreach voyages to other ports. Please check the Calendar for the Maryland Dove’s seasonal schedule.
A new Maryland Dove is currently being built in partnership with Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michael’s, Maryland, and set to complete in 2021. To see updates on the build, visit www.MarylandDove.org

For your consideration and visitor discretion, the Maryland Dove is a functioning ship and as such is floating on the water and beholden to Coast Guard regulations. Your safety is our concern.
