Adult Travel

Spending a week exploring the Chesapeake with the Sultana Education Foundation isn’t just for kids.   After years of requests from jealous parents (and grandparents!), the Foundation now offers multi-day adventures for adults that give you a chance to explore remote areas of the Chesapeake in a relaxed and educational atmosphere.   While Sultana’s Adult Travel trips are envisioned as outdoor adventures, don’t get too nervous – there’s no camping, and all of our trips are designed to be suitable for people of relatively average physical strength and endurance.

Take a look below at our current Adult Travel trips:

Chestertown & Kent County

NEW!!!!

Join Sultana Education Foundation this spring for an extended paddling exploration of Kent County, with a focus on the geological and human factors that have shaped the upper Eastern Shore over the past four centuries.  Striking out each day from our base camp at the historic White Swan Tavern in Chestertown, Maryland, participants will spend four days on the hidden creeks and marshes of the Chester and Sassafras Rivers, as well as the Chesapeake Bay proper. In addition to exploring the water, paddlers will take advantage of the educational amenities at Sultana’s Holt Education Center which include a one-of-a-kind digital projection system, a 30’ x 30’ map of the Chesapeake Bay, and scores of historic artifacts from the schooner Sultana, John Smith’s 1608 expedition, and Native Americans of the region. Sultana staff members will keep a particular focus on the stories of John Smith and the Native Americans tribes he encountered while the group paddles along pristine sections of the John Smith Historic Trail. Most days will include a half-day of flat-water paddling followed by time to explore the local culture and relax. On the final night of this experience, participants will enjoy a crab feast on the banks of the Chester River.

This trip is limited to 10 paddlers, and with the exception of one dinner, trip fees include all meals, lodging, paddling gear, and transportation to and from each day’s paddling site.

Pricing is as follows:

Single Occupancy Room                        $1000
Double Occupancy Room                      $800 each

Non-Lodging Option:                              $600

Berlin, Assateague & the Pocomoke

Join Sultana Education Foundation this fall for an extended paddling excursion to the lower Delmarva.  Striking out each day from base camp at the award-winning Atlantic Hotel in historic Berlin, Maryland, participants in this trip will spend four days exploring the back bays of Assateague Island and the primeval cypress swamps of the upper Pocomoke River – widely regarded as one of the finest flat-water paddling destinations on the East Coast.   Most days include a half-day of flat-water paddling followed by time to explore local culture and relax.

This trip is limited to 10 participants, and with the exception of one dinner, trip fees include all meals, lodging, paddling gear, and round-trip transportation from Chestertown/Easton.
