Anne Arundel County, Visit Annapolis seek proposal to bring ferries back to the Chesapeake Bay

January 11, 2023

Anne Arundel County and its visitors bureau, along with a consortium of other waterfront jurisdictions and nonprofits, are exploring the possibility of reestablishing a ferry system across the Chesapeake Bay. As tourism begins to reemerge following nearly three years of pandemic restrictions, the group, which also includes governments from Calvert, St. Mary’s, Somerset and Queen Anne’s counties and the Maryland Economic Development Corporation, is hoping a network of ferries would boost tourism, support local economies and allow residents and visitors to better familiarize themselves with the state and its history, said Kristen Pironis, executive director of Visit Annapolis & Anne Arundel County.
