The Capt. Thomas

The Capt. Thomas was built by Maston Krentz at Krentz's railway at Callo, Va. in 1969.

She was originally built to run passengers from Reedville to Tangier Island. Built out of mahogany and is powered by 2 Detroit Diesel 12V71, she is 65 feet in length and cruises at 12 knots. She was built with a spacious top deck for viewing wildlife and other sights and has an enclosed cabin in case of inclement weather. She has a full snack bar and bathroom facilities.

In 1987 she was replaced by the more suited Chesapeake Breeze to run to Tangier Island. The seating was rearranged to accommodate more outside seating and spectacular views from anywhere aboard the vessel. She is now located at Tappahannock, Va. Running cruises up the Rappahannock River to Ingleside winery.

Our Customers Say

I’ve watched the Capt. Thomas make its daily run up the Rappahannock River, since I was a little boy. Now that I’ve taken the trip, I realize why they been doing it for so long. Wonderful trip!
