Frequently Asked Questions about Tangier Island Cruises


Is the boat handicapped accessible?

The Chesapeake Breeze does have a gangplank that will accommodate a 24" wide wheel chair or motorized scooter. If the wheel chair does not fit the gangplank and you can possibly walk aboard, we will load you wheelchair on the boat and transport it to the island for your convenience.

Can we bring our own bikes onboard to the island?
Yes, you can bring your own bike aboard the boat to the island at a cost of $5.00, but storage is limited. Or you can rent a bicycle on the island for $10.00 for the day at Sunset Inn.

How can we get around the island easily?

You can walk around the island if you choose, since it is only about a mile wide and 3 miles long, or you can rent a bike or a golf cart to tour the island. A bike rental is $10 or a golf cart is $20. Or a frequent choice of visitors is to hire one of the ladies on the island to give you a tour and have her show you all the points of interest and explain more about the island, which is $5 per person.

Can we bring our own food and drink onboard?
Yes, you can bring you own food and drinks with you on the boat to the island.

Can we bring alcohol onboard the boat?
Yes, you can bring alcohol on board the boat, however, Tangier is a "dry" island and no alcohol can be purchased on the island. That does not mean alcohol is not consumed on the island, but it cannot be purchased. We therefore suggest you leave your alcohol on the boat while touring the island.

Do we need to make our own reservations for a specific restaurant?

If you let us know how many people are in your group, we can contact the restaurant of your choice for reservations, but normally a small group does not require reservations.


Is there someone at the dock who can tell us more about the island and direct us where to go?

Yes, our tour guide will meet the boat at the dock. She is there to answer all your questions and direct you to different places of interest on the island.
