Janet and I are also members of The Longship Company, a non-profit group that owns a faering that ours was based on and also a 40 Viking warship, the Sae Hrafn (Sea Raven). The Longship Company is based in southern Maryland and the Sae Hrafn is berthed at the Calvert Marine Museum. Voyages are FREE, just tell them you're coming. (firstname.lastname@example.org) Also, if you tell them you're coming and then can't make it, please make sure you tell they you are not coming so they don't wait around for you. Bring two liters of water per person, a lunch, sunscreen and a hat. Viking clothing is not required. 21st century boating clothes are completely fine.
