2021 Chesapeake Bay Buyboat 17th Annual Reunion Cruise.

The 17th annual reunion tour will be in ports in the Lower part of the Chesapeake Bay from Urbanna Virginia to Tangier Island, Onancock Va, Cape Charles Va, Poquoson Va, then to Horn Harbor Va..

These unique craft that were used to haul seafood and cargo using the Chesapeake Bay waterways before many of the peninsulas were connected by bridges.  As the seafood harvest declined and highways became the mode of travel the large graceful buyboats faded from local waters.  There are, perhaps, not more than 30 of the oyster buyboats remaining on the Bay.

The Chesapeake Bay Buyboat Association is comprised of owners and people who share the love of these big boats. The  owners maintain and operate the remaining buyboats at their own expense.  The owners bring their boats to ports around the Bay each summer so that the public can stand on the decks, touch them and understand their importance in history.
