Whitehall Bay, on the west side of Chesapeake Bay and has general depths of 13 to 6 feet. A lighthouse at Sharps Point, on the west side of the entrance to Whitehall Creek Entrance Light 2W, provides a well-marked approach to the channel between North Shoal and Whitehall Flats.
Tilghman Creek is an excellent place to drop the hook if you are looking for solitude. This honey of an anchorage is sheltered from all directions, although houses and docks surround the cove. Normally not too crowded and offers Good holding.
While tidal current tables report the current at the entrance at 2 knots, old hands know that the current across the entrance can be substantially greater. More current is experienced at the far end of the basin where a small stream enters.
I anchored here a while back for a short rest on a long trip and the anchorage was great except for a few things. Carter Creek is home to a few resorts and golf clubs making basic supplies expensive. The closest store, other than yacht club ship stores and tourist shops, was a 45 minute walk. The anchorage itself is easy to get into and the views are very pretty but the weekend motorboat traffic was very heavy creating the never-ending wake.
Rum Point Basin anchorage has good holding and plenty of room. You can leave your dinghy in the Trump marina/ state marina between F and E docks for 3 hours for free. Bus comes every 10 minutes to take you to town.
If you are going to be sailing on the east coast you need this resource. The Waterway Guide comes both online and in the book form. Whenever I have internet access I always consult the online database but when I am in areas with no cell service then I consult the book. Either way Waterway Guide has the information you will be looking for. I use this guide for all my route planning.
