The area consists of a small dock leading to a ferry owned by Tobar, the Duchess Gambit. The ferry is the only way to Point Lookout from the Capital Wasteland. Along the docks you can find a small pot of wild punga fruit. In addition, you can find Catherine on the docks, looking for her daughter, Nadine, who has apparently run away to Point Lookout.
Several mirelurks are set to spawn at this location. This occurs even before Point Lookout is installed. With the introduction of the add-on they instantly die when traveling to the landing, or loading a save at the dock. Up to six level dependent mirelurks spawn on the shore and in the water near the Duchess Gambit; they will respawn every 72 hours.
