AICW Channel South of McClellanville, SC to Awendaw Creek

AICW Channel Between McClellanville and Statute Mile 430
(Statute Mile 430 to 435, South Carolina ICW)

The Problemover the past two years (at least), we have received numerous reports of shallow depths in the AICW channel, moving south from an intersection with Jeremy Creek and McClellanville to Statute Mile 435, near Awendaw Creek. Reported sounding have ranged from 5 feet to grounding depths, and these shallows still seem to be as much of a problem as ever, as of August, 2012

The SolutionTransit this section of the AICW with maximum caution, and stick strictly to the middle of the channel. Be careful not to cut any corners, nor encroach on the channel’s edge. Try to time your passage through this section for mid to high tide

    My wife Pat and I traveled from Mile 430 to 435 on 10/24/16 one hour after low water, staying in the middle we found no less than 6 feet of water throughout the area.
