Depth Report from Rock Creek Anchorage, AICW Statute Mile 516

Rock Creek Anchorage - Click for Chartview

Rock Creek has shoaled badly, south of the stream’s first turn to the northeast, north of the it’s intersection with the AICW. Favor the eastern banks in order to stay clear of the correctly charted shoal making out from lower Rock Creek’s westerly banks.

We anchored after the northeast turn. There is a shallow section on the starboard side the channel right where you approach the first trees along the bank. The port side has 15 to 18 feet of water with 7 to 8 feet at 1 hour before low tide past the turn getting shallow on the starboard tide of the creek past the turn. We anchored in 6.5 feet of water 250 meters past the turn. We were having 20 to 22 kt of wind from the north which calmed down to 12 to 15 behind the trees.
