First time cruising to Saint Michaels...Any Tips?

We're taking our P26 from Baltimore to Saint Michaels, spending Friday night there, then coming home. We're usually ok with dropping the hook, but were thinking of a slip for the night. Looks pretty expensive, assuming there even is anything available. Anyone know of a good alternative?

Just anchor off the museum. If you don't have a dink there's a water taxi.

If you haven't been to the Maritime Museum its worth it.

I usually drop the hook where Vasco suggested but on the other side of the small channel markers in front of The Inn at Perry's Cabin.

The Crab Claw is always a favorite as well as Micheal Rorks Town Dock for something a little more elegant (BTW...tell Chef Rork I say hi) Great coffee at the Blue Crab Coffee Company.

Watch the depth south of the Wye on the on the eastern shore of the Miles River

Cheers,

There is a small marina on the right, near the Crab Claw, called Higgins Yacht Yard, that is, I believe, a bit cheaper than the other marinas. Phone number is 410-745-9303. They don't monitor Ch 16; you have to call the phone number as you are nearing the marina. Reservations are advised for any marina in St. Michaels.

I've eaten at the Crab Claw a number of times and do recommend it as T37Chef did. One caveat--they do not take credit cards so bring cash.
