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.

group does not require reservations.

the island and direct us where to go?
