Re: Delaware River Anchorages

There are few safe overnight anchorage on the Delaware River above the C&D.

The two official anchorages that are not for commercial shipping are behind the north jetty between the C&D entrance and Delaware City, and behind Little Tinicum at Essington.

The Delaware City anchorage is very exposed and in a swift current.

The Little Tinicum anchorage varies from exposed to a 5 mile fetch off Corinthian to well protected opposite Anchorage Marina.

Anywhere else on the river will get a visit from USCG, NJ or Phila marine police, DNR or the fish and boat commission asking if you need help.
