Protected Water

Creeks on the Chesapeake are large bodies of water with smaller entrances that offer protection from the currents and winds.  They are great locations for mooring boats at one's private dock.  The many coves present a wide range of water depths,  The deeper water to accommodate bigger boats may come at a premium. These waters are ideal for canoe and kayaking. Whatever the level of boating skill, Chesapeake Bay creeks afford everyone a great pleasure.

Harbour Views


One of the delights of life on the creek is the activity: the quiet, slow-moving crab boats, moving from pot to pot; a gorgeous sailboat, searching for a safe overnight location; a fishing neighbor, cruising out to the Bay; or a pair of kayaks, gleefully gliding through the water. Harbor views create a glimpse into a shared coastal life.
