Built by Scarano Boat Builders of Albany, N.Y., the 65-foot River Packet began her career as Seneca Chief on Seneca Lake in upstate New York. Later she was moved to South Carolina where she was used for river tours in Charleston Harbor. Now located in Chestertown, the River Packet has been completely refurbished by local craftsmen.

Destinations


 - Chester River Packet Company
Our cruises typically start from the foot of High Street (Town Dock) in Chestertown, Maryland and travel south on the Chester River. From this starting point, the furthest we will travel (at about 8 knots) is to the Quaker Neck Landing.

We like to explore other creeks and tributaries of the Chester River, so we will run special cruises starting from Quaker Neck Landing and head towards Langford Creek and the Corsica River.

Typical Day


 - Chester River Packet Company
We run three different weekly cruises (with the exception of private charters and special events). Our dinner cruises are Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, with oftentimes a most spectacular sunset midway through. Saturday afternoons we run a shorter tour (this is the only cruise without a meal). Our ever-popular brunch cruises are held every Sunday. The meal cruises (dinners and brunches) oftentimes have a "cocktail hour" before the buffet is set up.

Age range, type of group


 - Chester River Packet Company
We are all-age friendly! Children’s tickets may be less than the regular advertised price. Be sure to include ages when inquiring about child ticket costs.

Sleeping and meals


 - Chester River Packet Company
Our meals are handled by Occasions Catering in Chestertown. The dinner menus change every trip, but we consider our meals to be a "casual cuisine" of sorts. Keep in mind that we are not a restaurant, but a boat with deliciously prepared food! The buffet is well-stocked with meal items, so eating post or prior to a cruise is not necessary. Our brunch cruises are longer and have more food items to choose from.

Policies & Restrictions


 - Chester River Packet Company
We allow friendly/quiet dogs to join our cruises! We don't have a size limit for pets, just keep in mind that our gangway is relative to the tides and you may have to carry your pet on or off!

We allow smoking onboard, but only on the upper deck. We ask that you take the wind into consideration and be aware of other guests near you.
