THINGS TO DO
Herring Bay and The Creeks
Herring Bay offers a popular day anchorage with a scenic shoreline. Prevailing winds during the summer are out of the Southwest which means Herring Bay is often protected.
Many boaters enjoy swimming and floating in rafts on Herring Bay. Others enjoy water-skiing or pulling kids in tubes.
Many local boaters enjoy short trips across Herring Bay and up and down the creeks. There are five waterfront restaurants and bars to which you can dock. Check a kayak out from the office for a pleasant paddle up the scenic creeks. From Herring Bay, countless destinations are within a day or weekend trip.
Fertile fishing grounds frequented by amateurs and pros alike are nearby. Rockfish (Striped Bass) and Bluefish are often found off Holland Point and Poplar Island. Some enjoy drifting in 5′-10′ of water in Herring Bay and catching spot, perch, and croaker.
