About


Introduction:

Breezy Point Inlet is located about 24 miles south of Annapolis and 20 miles north of Solomons Island on Maryland’s Western Shore just south of Herring Bay. Breezy Point Harbor is a man-made shelter that houses the Breezy Point Marina, a facility with limited transient slips, gas and diesel fuel, and a lift for haul-outs and repairs.

This is a convenient stopover point on the way south if you get a late start north or south out of Annapolis or Solomons, respectively as the distance to both areas is almost equidistant from Breezy Point. Deep keeled or high-masted sailboats need not apply - the overhead clearance is limited (42 feet) and the depths are three feet at best.

The image above is a view from the east looking west over the entrance to Breezy Point Harbor. Toward the top of the image, Plum Point Creek can be seen winding through a lush, green marsh, while the Breezy Point Marina facilities are visible to the right (north). Of particular note (and you have to look closely) is the 42-foot-high power cable that is strung across the Breezy Point entrance.

Navigating the Water:

Use NOAA Chart 12263.

Plum Point is the official geographic designation on the chart for the harbor and town of Breezy Point. Traveling up or down the Chesapeake bay, the entrance to Breezy Point Harbor is marked by green can “1.” The rest of the channel into Breezy Point is not marked, and depths are a shallow three feet in most places (note the lack of sailboats in the image above). An overhead power cable limits the vertical clearance in the harbor to 42 feet. If you are unsure as to current conditions, call ahead to the Breezy Point Marina for details and local knowledge on the latest conditions of the entrance.
