It’s no secret that Historic Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay have breathtaking views. These vistas have always been a source of inspiration for photographers, filmmakers, adventurers and musicians that are looking to make an impression in their art with Chesapeake Bay's unique styled lighthouses, scenic shoreline landscapes, beautiful waterfront properties, the famous Chesapeake Bay Bridge and ships anchored in Baltimore Harbor. Movie making requires careful planning with regard to location and background of your video.

Island Chill Yacht Charters began as a venue for photoshoots and music videos in 2013 and evolved in 2016 as a boat charter company. We provide a unique boat venue and is available to shoot your next upcoming project. See our sail & powerboats...
