Buck Island Anchorages (Group of three at Statute Mile 56 on NC-VA Cut)

If you can deal with the restricted 5-8 ft depths and the many crab traps/pots, you should be able to find good holding in one of the three recommended spots around Buck Island. These waters lie south of Coinjock, along the AICW’s trek through North River.

We anchored on the north side on 11/8/2009 for the first time. We arrived late in the day right at sunset. Depths were pretty much as charted and holding seemed good. It was a quiet anchorage that night, but it could be less if traffic passes by in ICW. We had a good night but were fogged in for a couple of hours in the morning.
We usually anchor a couple miles further south and east in the vicinity of Lutz Creek. You will usually find crab pots in all these anchorages.
