Dickerson Harbor near Trapp and Oxford MD is the best hurricane hole on the mid Chesapeake Bay area. We have slips for keeping your boat in the water and a 75-ton travel lift for haulout if a storm is imminent and you want extra protection. We are over two miles up protected La Trapp Creek, so wind and wave damage is always minimal. Our land storage area is on high ground and has never flooded in any storm in recent history.

Every owner of a fine yacht needs a hurricane hole ready if needed. Hurricane season starts in June and storms can still be a nuisance in October. Be prepared and give us a call to reserve your spot.

Having a designated hurricane hole for your boat in the Chesapeake Bay at the beginning of hurricane season offers several significant benefits. First and foremost, it provides a secure and protected location to safeguard your vessel from the potential damage caused by powerful storms. By selecting a well-chosen hurricane hole, you can minimize the risk of your boat being exposed to strong winds, heavy rains, and turbulent waters, which can lead to structural damage or even sinking.

Additionally, having a pre-planned hurricane hole saves valuable time and eliminates the stress of searching for a safe haven when a hurricane or tropical storm is approaching. This proactive approach allows you to focus on other necessary preparations and ensures that your boat is swiftly and efficiently secured, reducing potential last-minute complications.
