No water taxis in RH, and theres not really anyplace to anchor in Rockhall Harbor. If you go into Waterman's though they do have free dockage for diners. If you're staying the night you should head up to Swan Creek, plenty of room to anchor there, but you'll need a dingy to get into town. We usually land the dingy over by Haven Harbor or go around to the public beach on the bay.

Haven't been in Rock Hall for a few years but I used to go right around and anchor in front of the townhouses. Can you still do that? Room for one or two boats there.

Vasco, I'm sure one could...I did several years ago off season in a 24' boat.

Shawn, thanks. I am at the dock. Took me awhile as the wind was blowing hard from north and my wife doess not like to help. Haha. A gentleman took a line for me, it sure helped a lot.

When I get out the harbor to swan creek. How far I need to go before I make a right. I was a bit nervous when I came in to the harbor a mile from the red buoy. It was only 7 ft.

May be able to tie to bulkhead on North side of harbor

I do not know what you draw but we have seen boats tied to the bulkhead on the Northerly side of the harbor. There is a large Waterman Statue there and I am sure that watermen use that parking lot to unload their catch in the AM but I would think you could sit there for the night without a problem. There is not the traffic you would find during warmer months so I doubt there is much competition for one of those spots. Do avoid the center of the harbor. Mighty shallow there.

Our draft is 5. At the restaurant, it is 9 ft near high tide. We should be ok.

Haha ...... The gentleman who took the line for us was the manager of Waterman place. After the dinner we asked if we can stay at their dock for the nite. He gladly said yes and reminded us they close at 9 pm if we need the restroom. What a great guy.
In fact the food was much better and service was wonderful; so much different from in the summer time. We had a cute waitress too.

This is actually a free dock, according to the cruising guide on The Active Captain
