Coming to Smith Island for an extended visit take time to experience the Watermen’s life.  Barry Bruce is a lifelong watermen, his family history goes back many generations on Smith Island.  There is so much to do here, you could book a full day.  Talk with Barry about going to Pelican Island, and Tylerton were you can see a big jaw bone of a whale in the front yard of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. Boat through the straights, and crooked guts of our Island were you can see several different types of wild life.  He makes a stop around the sound side were he takes 1 or 2 licks of the crab scrapes to show how crabs are caught.  He tells his history of crabbing as a child with his father up to present day.  He talks about how techniques have changed from Pad and tongs for oystering to dredging, and trout lines for crabs to scrapping.  Later he will stop at his shanty to show how crabs shed their shells.  He brings you through the straights to Capt. Daniels place, and up to Kedges Strait Light House were the Navy had their big battle of the revolutionary war.  All the away along your tour photo opportunities abound.
