  bug season

Because it is the one place my wife will paddle, and it is an hour from my house we go to Sinepuxent Bay most weekends. In the summer the bay side is really mosquito heaven.If you stay on the water you should be fine. Chip's assessment is right on. I have never encountered waves bigger than 2 feet. The wind can be brutal at times, especially when it runs North or South. It comes up or down the bay without barriers. If you want to camp in the summer the ocean side is usually not to bad. We launch from Ferry Landing and never fail to see the ponies. We usually paddle around and stop for a picnic on Egging Island. There are some nice sandy beaches, and because it is mid bay the bugs are not bad. The tide is usually not to drastic, but some of the guts can get real shallow. One of the good things is it is rare to have any boat traffic any were in the national seashore side.
