The Municipal Corporation of Cape Charles Harbor ably hosts a unique mix of commercial, industrial, and recreational vessels in its protective basin boasting 95 slips, 4 T- Heads ranging from 60 to 120 feet and 1200 feet of dock space. Whether for work or play, patrons enjoy access to the greatest fishing areas on the Chesapeake Bay. Visitors can watch watermen haul in and off-load their daily catches of blue crabs, horse shoe crabs, conchs, fish, clams, shark and scallops. The Harbor’s state-of-the-art public boat ramps are enjoyed by both individual pleasure and sport fishing crafts as well as the charter boats that run expeditions daily for cobia, striped bass, flounder, drum, spade, trout and croaker. Transient vessels appreciate the Harbor for its deep-water slips and docks and short walk to the re-emerging Historic Town.
