Questions about Salem Sound

Low - 9:15 AM

High - 3:30 PM

A couple of friends and I want to paddle Wednesday in Salem Sound/Baker's Island/Mysery Island etc. I have been there a good bit, but have some questions:

1) How is the put in at Grace Oliver Beach/Dolliber Cover near the end of Marblehead?Parking? Tide situation? I do not see this put in on our web site?

2) Any more definitive news on Manchester parking for a Wednesday?

3) Low Tide - 9:15 AM, High Tide- 3:30 PM. I have never been fully aware of the tidal actions in the sound. Do the tides have much action except as you near the Harbors?

Thanks in advance,

Al

Not a good put in at low tide at Doliber cove, but the beach around the corner is OK. High Tide at Doliber cove is ok, but at complete high, there is no beach, the water is right up to the sea wall, but only a foot or so deep. Parking is limited on street to about 6 cars at Doliber cove, and maybe 12 or so at the beach around the corner. On a weekday you will probably be fine, on a weekend...forget it.

There aren't enough tidal currents in Salem sound to be concerned with unless you head up the Danvers river, there is some current near the Beverly bridge.
