Annapolis Docking

I'm thinking about stopping at Annapolis tomorrow evening. Any chances there will be space at the ego alley dock on a Saturday? If not, any other ideas? Mooring field?

I believe mooring ball rates are around $25/night.
The anchorage is free. I've anchored there successfully.

For a slip, why not call ahead to the harbor master and ask about availability?

the holding ground and Spa Creek is not great from what I recall usually you can get a mooring if you get in there just after checkout which is noon I believe. you may get something on the Bulkhead near or in ego Allie its first come first serve for either moring or bulkhead. with either you get use of the bathroom and shower facilities

Cheers,

Re: Annapolis Docking

I thought mooring balls were $40? But haven't actually moored there myself. Ego alley can be a loud place if there's a good crowd.

Mooring up 45 ft is $30 and up to 55 is $35 with shower.

Come in after 8 pm and leave before 8 am may be free, but no shower. Stand-by shower is possible, no guarantee. Hahahaha

I find dropping anchor just outside the mooring field is just as convenient. Water taxi ride may be a dollar more. It is quiet, I like it. It is good place to go especially entertaining the out of town guests.

Have fun.

Just don't anchor in the silt by the Naval Academy Sea Wall. Moorings in Annaopolis Harbor are gone by 1 PM. Go to Back Creek. Taxi will go there as well.

Re: Annapolis Docking

Last year, Annapolis started a reservation system for a few tie ups by the old Fawcetts. I don't know the particulars but give them a call for more info. I like the mooring balls either out in the harbor or through the bridge in Spa Creek for better convenience. You can dinghy to a street head and walk to the Annapolis sites.

Theft of services is not leaving a clean wake. Bad karma. If you stay overnight you owe the fee.

The police watch for people tailgating into the showers due to issues with homeless trying to camp in the heads. You'll get an embarrassing ticket.

The moorings just above the Spa Creek bridge are limited to boats 35' and under. All moorings, slips, and bulkhead spaces with the exception of the old Fawcett spots are first come first served. Call Annapolis Harbormaster on channel 17 as you enter the harbor.

City pump-out boat does not serve the Naval Academy anchorage (or boats on the Navy moorings in Weems Creek). South Anchorage is fine and holding is quite good. Holding in Spa Creek above the bridge and in Back Creek is fair to good. Holding in Weems Creek is quite good.

Every City of Annapolis street that ends at the water has a free dinghy dock (length limits apply which vary between 12 and 17' depending on the dock and no overnight stays on the dinghy dock without advance approval of the Harbormaster).

There is a free circulator bus downtown that covers a lot of ground. The eCruiser's provide free shuttles from most of Annapolis proper to supporting restaurants downtown. This works great for folks anchoring in Weems or Back Creeks and wanting to go downtown.

For SSCA members there are two Annapolis cruising stations to provide local knowledge and support. See your cruising station list for details.

There are lots of marinas with transient dockage.

Re: Annapolis Docking

We were just there on Thursday and got a spot on the wall in Ego Alley. No one else was there, but a few boats showed up by late afternoon. Love to be on Ego Alley, easy to hop on and off to shower, shop, eat, get ice, get that last minute ice cream cone, and most importantly, a great latte before shoving off.
