News Release, St. Mary’s County Public Information Office

Leonardtown, MD – The St. Clement’s Island Water Taxi, the only publicly-accessible boat transportation from St. Clement’s Island Museum to St. Clement’s Island State Park, will cease operations Sunday, Oct. 13, 2019, for the 2019 season.

The St. Clement’s Island Water Taxi will conclude operations on that date in order to be serviced and prepped for required winter maintenance while weather conditions remain favorable for such upkeep activities.

The Water Taxi will return to service March 25, 2020, in time for Maryland Day and the summer 2020 operating season. For more information regarding the water taxi operating schedule until Oct. 13, 2019, please call 301-769-2222.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
