USCG CertificationPassenger Vessel (Subchapter T)
SIGSBEE is a Chesapeake Bay skipjack, used to dredge oysters and haul cargo on the Bay. She was built in 1901 and dredged commercially until 1993. In 1994, she was completely rebuilt and certified to carry passengers. Today, Sigsbee sails the Chesapeake and Delaware Bays, teaching students about the ecology, history, and economic importance of her local waters. She still dredges and trawls for fish daily, but only for educational purposes. She sails between march and November and offers programs from 1 day to 10 days in length.
