The Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Fishing and Boating
Services will have four vessels available during the 2017- 2018 ice
season. The icebreaking schedule listed below is the basic guideline to
start the season noting that changes to the schedule may occur based on
the severity of ice incurred this season.
A heavy ice season may
restrict our ability to reach every area on a regular basis due to each
vessel's icebreaking capabilities, U.S. Coast Guard restrictions, weather
conditions, tidal levels and the possible need to relocate vessels to
areas of greater need.
Requests for service should be directed to John Gallagher of Hydrographic Operations at 410-643-6521 or by cell phone at 443-534-9610. You can email John.Gallagher1@maryland.gov for specific instructions or emergencies. Information will be sent to the individual captains.
