Visiting from Philadelphia?
Great news! You can be paddling on the Upper Chesapeake Bay in as little as an hour! The drive from Philadelphia is an easy one, just take I95 South to Exit 100 headed towards North East. After crossing Rt.40 and traveling down the Main Street of the Town of North East, take a right on to Church Point Road directly after the Post Office (left) and St. Mary Annes Church (right, brick building, large stone walls). Head on down to the end and Bay Venture Outfitters is located directly on the water.
Want to escape Philadelphia for the day? We recommend you take a hike in Elk Neck State Park to check out the Turkey Point Lighthouse which offers stunning views of the North East River, Susquehanna River, Elk River, Sassafras River, and the Upper Chesapeake. Stop in the Town of North East for shopping and restaurants. Make sure to grab yourself an award winning 'all lump, no filler' crab cake at Port House Grill.
