Area boating and fishing destinations

Nestled between the Chesapeake Bay and the beautiful Patuxent River, Asbury Solomons offers relaxing waterfront living with close access to Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Annapolis, Maryland.

An area rich in history, Southern Maryland is also renowned for its fresh and delicious seafood – especially blue crab, oysters and rockfish. Whether fishing from our community pier, exploring the area’s possibilities by boat, or booking a local charter fishing expedition, your opportunities for enjoying and exploring the water abound. The three counties that comprise Southern Maryland – Calvert, Charles, and St. Mary’s – provide plenty of ways to fill your calendar. Events like the Artsfest, St. Mary’s River Concerts, and the Sotterly Arts and Wine Festival provide fun for family and guests. Visit attractions like Annmarie Sculpture Garden and Arts Center and Calvert Marine Museum, take a hike and search for fossils at Calvert Cliffs State Park or visit St. Clement's Island - an historic 40-acre state park accessible only by boat. Browse the shops on Solomons Island, kayak around local creeks, or charter a boat for day-long excursions.

You can enjoy all the charm and history of Southern Maryland while exploring the unique characteristics of an island resort town.
