Wye River Deep Anchorages

Can anyone suggest a nice anchorage in the Wye River, we draw @ 6, so it can be tough sometimes to find a nice spot.

We will be going next week.
Thanks!

Try Dividing Creek. We draw 5'5" and still have plenty of water under us. I think it's 8' or so.

Shaw Bay in the Wye River, near Big/High Island (camp Letts) on the Rhode River and Galesville Harbor between Chesapeake Yacht Club and Pirates Cove on the West River.

You can get into LLoyd Creek, Dividing Creek, Granary Creek, Quarter Cove, Pickering Creek without a problem - been into all of them with a boat that drew 7'3".. Just stay in the channel up the river as you go.

We were in Shaw Bay last Friday night. Beautiful cove and plenty of water. Also the cove on the other side of Drum Point is beautiful, too. Stayed over in Tilghman Creek's Claiborne Inlet on Sunday night. You'll want to avoid that one.

We like Shaw Bay and Dividing Creek...very peaceful.

I think we have seen Halcyon on the bay near Rock Hall...what kind of boat is she?

You might have. I hope we weren't doing anything dumb.

Catalina 30. Our marina is in Rock Hall. After we bought her two years ago we never bothered to change the hailing port on the transom from Annapolis. Eventually we'll get it changed but for now it's way, way down on our To Do list.

We definitely will! We're at Gratitude at the entrance to Swan Creek if you're ever in the neighborhood.
