Yup, I've seen that there other years, Labor Day weekend.

I watched for a while through glasses:
* There were 2 patrol boats on station and they aggressively ran folks off that strayed within ~ 400 yards, but without radio traffic. Don't expect a channel 16 reply.
* A large launch was busy running visitors back and forth, presumably to the Naval Academy. A recruiting thing, I'm sure.

(when asked how he reached the starting holds on a difficult rock climbing problem that clearly favored taller climbers - he was perhaps 5'5")
