This is a wonderful program. The Calvert Museum is one of the finest places I've been. They are doing a good job there in teaching folks about all kinds of things--boat building, oyster and crab harvesting, light houses, sailboats, archaeology and fossils, World War II history, and all kinds of sea creatures. The food was great and the fellowship wonderful. So glad I chose this program.


A very interesting, entertaining and educational Road Scholar adventure. One of my favorites and one of the best I have been on.


This program was a wonderful way for anyone to explore the lighthouses and marine information of the southern Chesapeake Bay. The Calvert Marine Museum is a wonderful site for the exploration of these topics and the staff and volunteers are welcoming, gracious and knowledgeble


If you are interested in lighthouses this is the program for you.


I prefer large signature cities - this was a bit laid back for me but interesting.


While the program is not awe inspiring, it was a very enjoyable and worthwhile experience. It is so much more than just lighthouses. It was a very good educational experience about the history, ecology and economy of the region. I even had the opportunity to steer the skipjack ship we sailed on the final evening. The group leaders, educational experts and support personnel were all excellent.


This was a fun trip. We saw 8 lighthouses and we had the opportunity to visit and learn about the Calvert Marine Museum. Most of the meals were catered, buffet style and the food was very good. The family style lunch at Smith Island was especially enjoyable. The evening cruise on the Dee St. Mary was a wonderful way to end the trip. I have never met people as passionate about what they do as the various folks who gave presentations and guided us through this program!
