Water-based activities from the Kent Narrows 


Kent Narrows Public Landing

Boaters will find this is an excellent staging area for cruising east towards Queenstown (5 miles), northwest towards Rock Hall (11 miles), or out into the open waters of the Chesapeake Bay (8 miles). This 1.0-acre site is primarily used for boat launching from the two 34 foot wide boat launching ramps.  Parking for approximately 85 vehicles is available. Wheelchair accessible portable toilets are provided year round. 


Paddlers should use this location with caution due to the heavy boat traffic and swift currents in the Narrows, which run up to three knots.
