Most Sandbridge Bay/Canal homes are located on canals that lead out
to Back Bay. Fortunately, many homes offer boat docks that are ideal
for fishing and crabbing. There's nothing quite like sitting on a
peaceful dock and "wetting your line". It's a perfect way to
begin to unwind and relax on your vacation.
And don't forget, you can saltwater fish off the beach (permit required) or head to the Little Island Fishing Pier located at the southend of the beach. Call (757) 426-0013 for pier hours and pricing.

Boating Rules and Safety:
It is unlawful for anyone to launch or land a
motorboat, sailboat, jet ski, or any other vessel
on the beach at Sandbridge between the hours
of 10 AM and 5 PM, except on the last 400’
of beach south of Little Island Park. The depth
of Back Bay, as well as the canals, averages
around 4 feet and is affected by the direction
of the winds rather than lunar tides. This depth
may dramatically increase or decrease with a
shift in wind direction. The canals are a “No
Wake Zone.” Boats should not come within
100 yards of shoreline. No alcoholic beverages
are allowed while boating. Life jackets should
be worn at all times.
If the beach home you have rented does not provide a boat ramp, you
may launch your boat free at Mill Landing Road Ramp (off Princess Anne Road in
or for a small fee at North Bay Shore Campground located off Sandbridge Road
near Margie and Ray's.
