AICW/Bakers Haulover Intersection – Click for Chartview

This section of the Eastern Florida Waterway has long been designated as an AICW Problem Stretch due to persistent shoaling, as well as having a Navigation Alert due to a relocated marker at the southern end of AICW/Bakers Haulover Inlet intersection.
Note the use of the description “severe shoaling” in the article below, cherry picked from the latest Local Notice to Mariners! Clearly, captains whose vessels draws 3 feet or more should time their passage of these troubled waters for mid to high tide!

FLORIDA-ATLANTIC INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY-BAKERS HAULOVER INLET: Shoaling.
The Coast Guard has received a report of severe shoaling in the Intracoastal Waterway in the vicinity of Bakers Haulover Inlet. The shoal is encroaching the channel from the east in between Biscayne Bay Buoy 7A (LLNR 47824) and Biscayne Bay Buoy 7B (LLNR 47828). Depths of less than 4ft have been reported during low tide near the center of the channel. Mariners are advised to exercise extreme caution when transiting the area. Chart 11467

Tide was dead low and I cleared the channel with my 40′ Azimut with a 4 ft. draft. There was a 70′ Azimut that ran aground, he did not favor the greens. FAVOR THE GREEN!!

Navigating Bakers Haulover Inlet/ AICW Intersection Problem Stretch, near AICW Statute Mile 1080

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 10-27-2012

The positive effects of recent dredging in the AICW Problem Stretch running behind Bakers Haulover Inlet, between Fort Lauderdale and Miami, seem to be waning already. The USCG has already reset the buoys to mark the recent shoaling. Captain Long relates first-hand experience with navigating this Problem Stretch.

Cruising News:
After transiting this section of the ICW several times in prior months with no issues. My students and I, avoiding the deteriorating weather offshore this week, decided to again take the ICW from Biscayne Bay to Fort Lauderdale. The section around MM 1080 has always been narrow with encroaching shoal. I have always seemed to hug the new green cans around the problem shoaling area, probably just due to southbound traffic. This time we were mid-channel and hit bottom between Red 6A and 6B. It was hard sand and we quickly got underway. My draft is 4’11″. I advise to proceed slowly through this section and stay nearer the newly moved green cans where I had no less than 9′, just after low tide.
