Fair, Mud. You can anchor in 36-foot depths, requiring a lot of scope for your anchor rode.

    For sailboats, slow boats and for protection from the weather, this is a much better and safer destination that others give it credit for. You just need a lot of rode to keep your anchor in place.

    We anchor behind the island at the entrance but it is deep! We typically find a 25 to 35 MLW for dropping the hook. The island has a sandy beach for pet relief which is a requirement for us with a dog. The island will provide some protection from large ship wakes but not from local fishermen or crabbers going out early in the morning. Be prepared for strong current. The attraction of this anchorage is the location about half-way between Cape May and Chesapeake City. It's the only stopping over point available near the halfway point.
