Tangier Island approach and docking.

I am considering stopping at Tangier on the way to Annapolis in our Lagoon 42.

Has anyone stopped there recently? If so was the east or west channel preferred? Is Parks marina still working/open I heard Mr. Parks had a hip fracture recently.

I am 42 loa, 26 beam, and 4.5 foot draft. Can I reasonably expect to get in and out without counting on a high tide.

I have the contact for Parks, but would like to know if some cruisers had been in there and what their experience was.

Cheers,

Dockdoc

Re: Tangier Island approach and docking.

Draft won't be problem either way. However, you will need to be on the bulkhead, and there is only room for about 3 larger boats. Call ahead and try to get in early.

Great stop. Leave time for several days, IMO. We sometimes stayed for a week, with kids.


Mr. Parks has so much family, I seriously doubt the only marina would be closed.

Re: Tangier Island approach and docking.

Went to Tangier, Mr. Parks hailed me on the radio "Hey George that you in the catamaran?"
$35 to be in the "marina" with power hook up. Was a tight fit to be sure.

Tangier was worth a one day one night stop, but not much more. Has turned into more of an amusement than a working island. Beware the stretch limos going up and down the streets, aka elongated golf carts.

Thanks for the post thinwater.
