I'd also recommend carters creek off the rappahnnock.
Sic, thanks I agree the Mobjack area is tops. Haven't been into the tributaries so will keep that in mind if we stay south. If I do venture there with 5' draft will be good to know which to stay clear of. We will have dingy with power so exploring will be totally an option so we're excited. The lighthouse used to be on an island and we'd go there and walk the shores. Tells you how long since then! Like you, though I'd also recommend Mobjack area high on anyone's visits in southern Chesapeake Bay.
