Can a sailboat get into St Domingo Creek and anchor off the back side of St Michaels? Reading the reviews on Active Captain I can't tell if they are sail boaters or power. By the looks of the chart it should be OK.

Depends on your draft. At 6'-4" draft, we can get close enough to kayak or dinghy in. With our draft on most weekends the creek gets too crowded to swing at anchor. We like to anchor in Edge creek at the mouth of St Domingo. You can still dinghy or kayak in but at over 3 miles it's a bit of a haul.

Yes..it can be done. With our previous boat's draft of 4' 6" we anchored within sight of the dock..which by the way is mostly controlled by local work boats and expect activity at 4am in the form of wake and high intensity lights..

I agree in the advice of both Jeff and Clay. We have anchored there in the past.

Re: St Michaels, Md

St Domingo is our preferred way to visit St Mikes now unless we're doing a multi-day and want to hit the Wye or somewhere on that side.

There is a fair amount of room just around the corner from the dock which is not too far of a dingy ride, though it would be tough if you had to row.
