Was there twice, most recently a little over a year ago. I draw 7.5 and found room to anchor just outside the ICW
channel. Plenty of depth
in the inlet itself where the breakwater is, but the waves and current can be pretty boisterous. Your should be fine in a 50ft boat
. The marks are a little confusing and it does get a bit skinny heading south to the anchorage. Keep the Red and Green combo mark to starboard when entering and head
straight at the next green from it, then turn south to split the red & green pair marking the channel entrance at the tip of Assateague Is. Continue a few hundered yards/quarter mile and tuck in as close to the Island beach as depth allows. I was asked to move once as I was too close to the channel and I tried to anchor on the west side, but ran aground. I found space just northeast of green mark "3".
Great area in the summer. not sure what is open now. There's a fuel dock
at the end of the commercial fish
harbor channel, which is also lined with restaurants. The food
Lion supermarket is a mile walk, gets pretty long when carrying groceries! We also left our dink at MR.Duck's if you want access to the 'carnival' side of things on the barrier Is.
This is a video we made of our 1st time going into OC..
