Known as the boating capital of Chesapeake Bay, Deltaville is all about sailboat races, fishing tournaments, life by the water, and seafood festivals. The town is bound by two rivers at the north and south and the watery landscape has had a profound role in shaping Deltaville's history and lifestyle. Wildlife here is abundant due to the rivers, marches, and creeks, plus miles of shoreline perfect for animals like deer, beavers, and muskrats to call home.
Start with a trip to the Deltaville Maritime Museum and get some perspective on the area's boat-building past. It's also set in a 36-acre waterfront nature preserve where visitors can enjoy walking trails and set off in kayak from the ramp here. The park and museum is additionally home to the historic buyboat, the F.D. Crockett.
For sailing enthusiasts, the Rappahannock River sunset cruise is a must, where people can learn the basics with a chartered captain. Alternatively, cruise down Mill and Jackson Creeks in a restored Deltaville Deadrise boat or go fishing in the Chesapeake Bay.
Come in October for the annual Art & Seafood Festival or during the summer for plenty of outdoor concerts and shows in the seafront park.
