Sure is... we draw 5'8" and had a slip in the creek for a while. Watch the entrance - it's very easy to ground. DO NOT CUT CORNERS. The easiest way, we found, was to start out at Red 2 at the southern end of the naval anchorage. Site Red 2W at the mouth of Whitehall Bay and head straight for it. Once you are just to the port side, head straight for 2M. At that point run the gauntlet (channel) to the inside of the creek. At one point you'll look like you're heading straight for land, and you will be, but you'll be OK. Once inside the creek, stay close to the center or the right side (east side) of the creek until you get to Cantler's. It can get pretty busy on season, so don't assume you'll be able to get a slip. I'm jealous... it's been a few months since we've been down and could get to Cantler's. If you like steamers (soft shelled clams), they have the best! In Feb or March we got some of the biggest and most amazing steamers I've had in my life there!
