Travel Tips for Deltaville

Between the Piankatank and the Rappahannock

by grandmaR

Deltaville is at the end of a long peninsula which ends at Stingray Point. Someone told me that they saw a flotilla of rays swimming along near the surface, so Stingray Point is appropriately named. Sadly, I have not seen this myself.

Deltaville is in a perfect position for boaters to get to the Chesapeake to sail or fish or engage in other water sports. There are marinas on both rivers. It has been known as the boat building capital of the Chesapeake. Our friends met us at the boat and took us to the West Marine store and we looked around the boatyards. Then we went to dinner in Gloucester.

152.6 MM on the Chesapeake - Broad Creek Marinas

by grandmaR

On our trip down to Deltaville to see our friends in August 2000, we went into Broad Creek off the Rappahannock. The entrance was a little tricky and they talked us into it on the radio. We first went to the pumpout dock near the travel lift slip to have a pumpout. Getting to the pump out dock, we were as good as aground, and the rudder wouldn't move because it was stuck in the mud. We bought tokens from the store and DIY. They only had gasoline fuel at that time. They let me use the office computer to look at email.

They were going to put us across the way at their new Regatta Point marina, but we were so stuck, that they just put us on the other side of the gas dock - they could almost walk us over there. At present, there are a large number of marinas in Broad Creek, but the marina we stayed in is no longer part of Doziers. The new marina has a pool and a courtesy car available

Jackson Creek Anchorage

by grandmaR

As we came into the Piankatank, we heard several other boats on the VHF radio who apparently were coming in to anchor in Jackson Creek. One of them told the other that Skipper Bob's book had several possible anchorages in it. Pay attention to the charts and put all the markers in order on the correct side of the boat, otherwise the shoal that comes out from the point will get you.

Town Docks

by grandmaR

This is a dock in Jackson Creek which I thought was another marina. But looking at the chart I see that there isn't any other marina over there that I could have seen.

I'll have to look up the town docks to see what the parameters of using them are.
