Red 16 marks the entrance to the York River. Proceed up-river about 10 miles. Just before the George P. Coleman Bridge is a boat ramp and adjacent beach. Anchor where safe and dinghy to the boat ramp area or land right on the beach between the gazebo and boat ramp, whichever is safest. The Visitor’s Center and Aquarium is the 3rd large building on the right as you walk up Greate Road.
