Educators Tours

Guided Tours

Our guided tours are designed to bring the vibrant heritage, ecology, and culture of the Chesapeake alive through themed, docent-lead explorations of our 18-acre campus and exhibits. Guided tours can accommodate a maximum per tour of 40 students with teachers and chaperones. 

 

Bay Bounty Tour Education in the Field
Ages: K-12 grades
Duration: 1.5 hours

In this science- and history-based guided program, learn
what it means to “follow the water” in every season on the Chesapeake through the eyes of a waterman. Students
will tong for oysters, pull crab pots, climb into an oysterman’s bunk on a skipjack, and hear stories of the “big guns” commercial hunters used at the turn of the 19th century.

 

 

Bay Discovery TourEcology Cruise
Ages: 2-12 grades
Duration: 1.5 hours

In this history-based program, we explore the Chesapeake’s intertwined past and present from the woodland forests and marshes of the Native Americans to the rumble of modern powerboats. Through touch objects and interactive displays
in our Hooper Strait Lighthouse, At Play on the Bay, Waterfowling, and Bay History exhibits, students learn
about how the Chesapeake profoundly shaped the lives of its inhabitants over the centuries.

 

Self-Guided Tours
In addition to our guided tours, we offer the option of self-guided tours by reservation. Our self-guided tours can accommodate up to 100 students with teachers and chaperones. Supplemental activities to compliment our self-guided tours are available by request. CBMM school tours run continuously throughout the year, and we welcome all students, whether from public, private, or home schools.
