St. Clement’s Island Water Taxi Begins New Daily Operation
Leonardtown, MD – Starting on Maryland Day, March 25, St. Clement’s Island Museum in Colton’s Point, Maryland and Piney Point Lighthouse Museum & Historic Park in Piney Point, Maryland, will switch hours of operation over to Summer Hours. The museums will be open daily beginning March 25 to October 31, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The St. Clement’s Island Water Taxi, which operates from St. Clement’s Island Museum to St. Clement’s Island State Park, will now be available daily starting March 25. Having only operated on the weekend and for special events, the St. Mary’s County Museum Division has expanded water taxi operation for visitors every day due to popular demand.
“We hated having to turn away out-of-town visitors from visiting the island during the week when the water taxi was not running,” says Karen Stone, Manager of the St. Mary’s County Museum Division. “We are pleased to now have a captain available during the week in addition to the weekend, which allows the museum to run the water taxi to the Island 7 days a week, weather dependent.”
