Smith Island: A True Island Community in the Heart of the Chesapeake Bay

Basics For Your Visit

Getting Around the Island

Smith Island has a unique feature – one of its villages, Tylerton, is separated by water from the other two villages, Ewell and Rhodes Point.

Arrangements can be made with the Captain Jason II or with Captain Waverly Evans to go between Ewell and Tylerton. Kayakers with some experience can also have an enjoyable paddle between the villages.

In Tylerton, one can easily get around on foot.

Bicycle and golf cart rentals are available near the county dock in Ewell. Rhodes Point is two miles from Ewell and the two villages are connected by road.
