Chesapeake City, MD
Recreational: The Bohemia River is fairly wide open and tidal. Scotchman Creek is across the Bohemia and is a great paddle trip. Manor Creek is just behind the launch area and is a shorter paddle trip. Turn right from the launch area to approach the Chesapeake Bay. We try to paddle here aroung high tide.
Difficulty & Must Haves:
Without wind, this is a very easy paddle and can be as long as the group wants. The 2 creeks are well protected and full of wildlife. Best to have a 12’ or longer kayak, especially if the wind picks up. Basic kayak training is the only requirement to attend this paddle. Need a lunch, sunscreen, water and all required paddling gear.
Nice to Have & Human Interest:
For windy days a spray skirt is great to have on the open Bohemia. Numerous waterfowl, to include eagles are throughout Scotchman Creek.
