About


Introduction:

Rock Hall is located on the upper Eastern Shore of Maryland about 19 miles due east of Baltimore and 12 miles north of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Rock Hall (named for the jagged Swan Point Shoal - called “The Rocks” hereabouts) is a convenient stopover or destination location for boaters. There are several large-scale marinas in the harbor and most any type of repair or refit can be undertaken here.

Navigating the Water:

Use NOAA Charts 12278 and 12272.

If you are approaching Rock Hall Harbor Inlet from the Chesapeake Bay, keep in mind that you will have to go around the Swan Point Bar, which extends about three miles south from Tavern Creek at the mouth of Swan Creek. There are a couple of spots that those with drafts of less than five feet can get through, but only with advance local knowledge.

We recommend heading down to green can “3,” which marks the southern end of the Swan Point Bar, and then head for flashing red buoy “4.” From here, set a course for green can “1,” and then for flashing green “5nd flashign red “4,” which mark the breakwatered entrance to the harbor (visible in the image above).

Once inside, the harbor is laid out in a “roundabout” fashion, with the centerpiece being a large two-foot-deep deep shoal that all the aids to navigation circulate around. Several marinas, repair facilities and a couple of popular waterfront restaurants line the shores here.
