Very nice floating kayak dock. Two things to keep in mind (1) the floating dock is plastic and gets HOT - so keep your shoes on, and (2) the algae along the edge of the dock is slippery and could cause you to take a dip in the river if you're not careful (I know... I did it).

excellent launch site, located at end of McIntosh Run & beginning of Breton Bay. paddling southeast leads to Breton Bay where it widens into large water area & eventually into the Potomac River where it joins the Chesapeake Bay. Paddling northwest leads through protected marshlands (with no motorized boat traffic) then into wooded creek area of McIntosh Run, eventually ending at the landing at Leonardtown Winery. The landing is county maintained, gravel soft launch, with ample parking. (no fees, free parking). great place to end the trip, or take a break for a glass of wine at the winery, or lunch at the Antique Shop's Tea Room. Plenty of places to eat nearby. McIntosh Run is beautiful year round, with passage most of the time. Water is smooth with slow moving current. Incredibly scenic, lots of shore birds & bald eagles, egrets, osprey; also, river otters & beaver. trip is approximately 1 1/2 hours from Leonardtown Wharf to McIntosh Landing.

Occassional shallow creek waters near the head at the winery (the last 5% of the run) and only occurs during low tide, but is easy to portage over low gravel bars. The rest of the creek is easy.
