  • Debris Reported, Wadmalaw River, East of Yonges Island, AICW Statute Mile 490.5


    This 10/17 9:00 AM report of a lot of debris in the vicinity of ICW Marker #92 in the Wadmalaw River comes from our friends, Carmen and Cathy Salemno, traveling south from Charleston. The debris consists of a large tree and many pieces of floating lumber. Slow and a sharp watch are called for! Also reported are lots of private dock damage.

  • Captain Jim Healy Discusses the Waterway from Charleston to St. Augustine

    Longtime cruiser and SSECN Contributing Editor, Captain Jim Healy, shares his knowledge and experience in these observations on this portion of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. Thank you Jim!

    The entire region from Charleston to St. Augustine has high tidal ranges, ranging from 5′ at St. Augustine to as much as 9′ in Savannah/Beaufort/Charleston.  Those high tidal ranges create swift tidal currents, and especially for first-times, docking is easiest in the 1/2 hour before and after slack.
    There are many areas of shallow water in the region.  The very best resource for current data on low water and caution areas is available via www.activecaptain.com.  Two other  websites that all ICW travelers should know about are www.waterwayguide.com and www.cruisersnet.net.  I’m sure you are familiar with the Waterway Guide book series.  The “Salty Southeast Cruiser’s Net” (SSECN) is  really a boating group.  It was founded by Claiborne Young.  After Claiborne’s untimely loss, the group continued in operation.  The Cruiser’s Net website specializes on the US Southeast.  There is some duplication of material between the WWG site and the SSECN site, but there is unique value to both.  Both are excellent resources for fuel prices, marinas and anchorages.  These websites would make a good sidebar for any ICW article.  Two of these websites require registration – SSECN does not – and all three are free, and all are very useful to ICW boaters.  Both WWG and SSECN also have smart phone apps that duplicate and augment website information and are very useful on small-format devices.
    There are some generalizations that apply to the region, including the stretch from Georgetown, SC all the way south to below Fernandina Beach.  In some of those areas, boats drawing more than 4′ will want to consider not traveling at low tide; especially celestial low tides.  The Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) is responsible for dredging the ICW.  USACE is funded by state congressional delegations.  In recent years, the money congress allocates to dredging has been diverted to “more pressing needs,” and so many areas of the ICW are shoaling, and in fact, the ICW resource is slowly being lost; well, allowed to die, really, by congress.  There is a not-for-profit called the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway Association.  The Executive Director is Brad Pickel; bpickel@seahavenconsulting.com.  That would make another sidebar for any article on the ICW.  There are some local knowledge bypasses around some shoal areas.  All of the cruising sites above can provide additional detail.
    Renting a car in any of these venues greatly expands what a boating visitor can see and do.  Some, but not all, marinas have courtesy cars.  Generally they can’t be used for long periods, but they are useful for re-provisioning when needed.
    Hope this helps.

  • Ridley Report from Tom Point Anchorage, AICW Statute Mile 495.5


    Skippers Charlie and Jackie Ridley have submitted several reports documenting their voyage north on the Waterway, beginning with Tom Point Creek anchorage, one of the best south of Charleston, as a number of you have commented.

    5-1-16 Anchored in Tom Point Creek just past MM 495. Easy in and out. In about 8′, good holding and plenty room for other boats, but were none. 3-4 bars on Verizon–great views!! Tide current usual.
    Charlie and Jackie on Traveler.

    5-14-16 Anchored in Big Tom Creek about ½ mile in from MM613, Wide channel and easy in and out of creek. Anchor set first try. Decent Verizon. Beautiful sunset!! will stop here again.

     For those who own a boat and love the water, buying a SJYH wet slip is an easy decision when you consider the benefits. The opportunity to own waterfront access a mere 11 minutes from historic downtoLocated on the western shore of the Stono River just south of the Waterway’s passage out the western/southern mouth of Wappoo Creek – Elliot Cut, and only a very short cruise from Charleston Harbor, St. Johns Yacht Harbor is A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR! By boat or by car, it is worth a trip just to see these beautiful facilities with probably the nicest Captains’ Lounge and Clubhouse on the east coast!

    Very nice, clean facility. Friendly and helpful staff. Convenient location. Grocery, drug stores and restaurants close by with courtesy car provided. Current can be tricky when tide is running,, but staff will assist with lines when docking. Will stop here again and recommend it highly to others.

  • Report from Tom Point Creek Anchorage, AICW Statute Mile 495.5


    The two Tom Point Creek anchorages are among the best south of Charleston, as a number of you have commented. Our thanks to Phil and Sandy Herl for this report.

    Tom Point Creek
    We finally left Lady’s Island Marina, after one month enjoying every minute. And getting our pumps and cat food delivered. With a late start we had to stop and just wait for the tide at Ashepoo/Coosaw cut but that was no problem, we have no agenda. When we got through the cut we thought about St Johns Marina or the Isle of Palms too late for either. Both jam up and jelly tight, we stopped at Tom Point Creek for an overnight anchor. No problem, and we enjoy an anchor out as long as the gen keeps working, and it did. Started out first thing in the AM and was running too early for Leland Marina (low tide) so we just dropped an anchor and waited out the tide and came in with no problems.
    Just enjoying the trip.

  • A SC Waterway Mini-Guide from Little River Inlet to Beaufort, AICW Statute Miles 349-517

    Many thanks to Skippers Lunsford for providing very recent reports from six shoaling areas between Myrtle Beach and Beaufort. Three of these areas have been designated SSECN Problem Stretches and their descriptions are listed below.
    For a recent report on McClellanville, see http://cruisersnet.net/?p=144354
    For a 2013 ACOE survey of area north of Ben Sawyer Bridge, see http://cruisersnet.net/?p=125717
    For a 12/2013 report on Ashepoo-Coosaw Cutoff, see http://cruisersnet.net/?p=129101
    For an alternative to Ashepoo-Coosaw Cutoff, see http://cruisersnet.net/?p=134342

    Hi there. We just came through this area in the last week, a bit ahead of the pack, so thought we’d pass on what we found at the traditional trouble spots to help those who come behind us (a copy of what we posted on a couple of Facebook groups). Thanx for all you do.
    Dan and Jaye Lunsford

    SM 349-352 The Rockpile: This stretch has numerous rock ledges on the sides of the channel so its important to stay in the middle. Not quite as scary as it sounds, but its the first time on the journey that the ICW is anything but mud if you do make a mistake. The ledges are very easy to see at low tide, and there is plenty of water depth even at the lowest tide. On weekends it can be crowded with power boats who may want to pass you if you are a slower sailboat and there really isn’t a lot of room to move over.

    SM 430-435 McClellanville: Time the tides here if at all possible. If you’re really motivated you can tiptoe your way through; we saw 6′ MLLW, but so much simpler to just give it a couple of hours.

    SM 460 shoals before Ben Sawyer bridge: 4′ MLLW, so its really important to time the tides here. Favor the north side of the channel from before G117A to G119.

    SM 471 Wappoo Creek Bridge: This operator is REALLY a stickler for time; bridge is closed during rush hour opens every 1/2 hour during the middle of the day (check the complex operating schedule) but if you aren’t waiting at the bridge before the opening, the operator will not hold even a moment but will make you wait for the next one.

    SM 501-504 Watts Cut: Although not listed as a traditional trouble spot, there are numerous shoals to 6′ MLLW along this reach. In a slow sailboat it’s hard to time the tides to have water here, and also water at the next trouble spot.

    SM 517 Ashepoo-Coosaw Cutoff: Stay at least a couple of boat lengths off G177 at the entry (“square the corner”) for 10′ MLLW. At the exit, R184 was reported destroyed; a new temporary drop aid (floating can) was placed there on Friday — we met the Coast Guard small boat that was doing the work on their way back. Slightly favor that NW side between R184 and G185, but time the tides if necessary, we saw 5′ MLLW here briefly.

  • Good Report from South Creek Upper Anchorage, North Edisto River, off the AICW


    South Creek makes into the North Edisto’s southwestern banks, south of Bohicket Creek’s southern mouth; this anchorage will be found immediately upstream of the “sy” notation on chart 11522.

    I have anchored here before and even went around the next turn to the right. Stay close to south shore. I found good bottom and plenty of swing room. Several fishing boats went by, slow with no wake and there is a mild current. You could hear the ocean at night.
    WARNING – the north side of the entrance is very shallow, hug the south shore and try picking a rising tide. I had 8′ at MLW.

  • Steamboat Creek Anchorage (off the AICW on North Edisto River, near St. M. 496.5)

    On 4/30/13 as part of a South Carolina Wish List, we posed the following question:

    Statute Mile 496.5 – anyone anchor on either Steamboat Creek, or Westbank Creek, south of the AICW’s entrance into the North Edistor, via Dawho River? Were you able to sight any of the nearby historic plantation houses from your anchorage? What depths did you discover?

    Responses follow:

    Anchored there [Steamboat Creek] 4 times in the last 2 years near the gazebo marking the landing. This is a private farm and I got run off by the caretaker while taking my dog for a walk.
    Depths run 20 to 25 ft. near the dock. Last time I had to anchor near the eastern shore of the creek to try to get in the lee of the trees. Saw two bald eagles. The caretaker said there was a big nest nearby.
    The creek runs some 3 miles long and there are several homes on up in it. There is a public dock/ ramp just south of the Steamboat gazebo and you can go ashore to walk your dogs. Good anchorage, plenty of water and swing room.

    Statute Mile 472.5 – Who has spent some tme at St. Johns Yacht Harbor, on the Stono River, south of the AICW’s entrance into Elliott Cut. Did you find this facility as nice as we have always discovered it to be? Did you try out the second story cruisers’ lounge? How about the swimming pool?

    Responses follow:

    Stayed there in spring and fall of 2012. Will stay there again. Some of the nicest facilities anywhere. Be careful if not arriving at slack current. Didn’t try pool or lounge. Could use a better eating facility and/or a courtesy car.
    s/v Skye

    We spent two nights at St. John’s for our Charleston visit. It was Race Week and all our normal venues were taken. This was our second visit and things are still excellent. The best change is that they now have a modern courtesy car for local shopping trips. Normally we rent a car from this marina to visit the city and surrounding areas. Enterprise has several offices that will pick you up. We were able to use the courtesy car the first evening to see a music performance at the Circular Congregational Church, which saved us a days car
    rental.
    After 9 years of doing tourist parts of Charleston, it is a nice change to tour the outskirts. BTW it was too cold for the pool but last year it was a refreshing stop. We did not use the lounge.
    Great service and modern facilities.

  • Elliott Cut – Wappoo Creek Section of the AICW (Statute Miles 472 to 469)

    On 4/30/13, as part of a South Carolina Wish List, we posed the following question:

    Statute Mile 472 to 469 – has anyone had problems with the strong tidal currents barreling through the Elliott Cut – Wappoo Creek section of the AICW, between the Stono and Ashley Rivers? Did you have problems keeping off the morning and afternoon restricted bascule bridge which crosses these waters east of marker #7?

    Responses follow:

    We have been through Elliott Cut -Wapoo Creek Bridge many times. No problem with current, They have always been managable. I do put out a Security Call on Both VHF 13/16 for commercial traffic. Transited the cut on 4-19-13 on a flooding tide. Dropped the Antenna’s and took our 30 ft Air draft right under the bridge with no opening necessary any restrictiions is not a problem if you just check your cruising guide and plan your arrival accordingly.
    Capt Bob Kovach

    We encountered a 2 1/2 kt current through the cut carrying us towards the bridge. We have a cat so it was not a problem, but a monohull might not have been so lucky. There was a significant current through the bridge which is offset to the eastern bank.

  • Toogoodoo Creek Anchorage (Statute Mile 495)

    On 4/30/12, as part of a South Carolina Wish List, we posed the following question:

    Statute Mile 495 – who has entered Toogoodoo Creek lately and anchored? Did you have any trouble avoiding the shoal water at this stream’s entrance? Where did you drop the hook among the many possibilities on Toogoodoo Creek?

    Responses follow:

    Anchored there on 4-6-13 Just follow the chart plotter in and watch the depth sounder it was a piece of cake. Lots of Swing room, Draft 5 ft had 10 ft under the keel at low tide. Lat 32 Deg 39.390 N Long 080 Deg 16.258 W. Good Holding ground Mud buttom. Enjoyed our stay. You can go back in the creek as far as you feel comfortable with the water depth you want.
    Capt Bob/ALLEZ

    Anchored there last fall, no problem getting in , went about 2 miles back and anchored at the intersection of Little Toogoodo….lots of current, but that’s to be expected in SC waters. Beautiful area.
    Philip W. Mullins (Phil)

    Toogoodoo Creek is an excellent anchorage. You have little or no local traffic to “wake” you. You’ll probably have the anchorage to yourself. If not, there’s plenty of space in the length of the anchorage. It’s relatively open to wind, but well protected and generally calm waters.
    It takes a few miles off the ICW to get around the long bend, into the straight part of the creek. Anywhere in the straight part of the creek works for anchoring. Be aware there are 8′ tides in the area, so there will be a strong current that reverses every six hours with the tide change. I personally use two anchors, one upstream and one downstream, for extra security.

    One of our favorites!
    Tracy Hellman

    Anchored there 4/24/13. Anchored just before New Cut Landing. Came in near low tide. Had 7 feet. Considered better than average anchorage but conditions were quiet.
    s/v Skye

    Anchored here 4/30/13; still the excellent anchorage it has been over the past years.
    Bruce Franz

    Regarding Church Creek. If traveling South make sure you go way beyond the marker in the middle of the ICW. Cutting short heading into Church Creek will put you aground. Plenty of water otherwise. Anchoring will get you about 12 to 18 feet of water most times.

  • Strong Tidal Currents on AICW/Elliott Cut/Wappoo Creek Lead To A Change in Plans

    The appealing account below is excerpted from our good friend, Captain Wally Moran’s site, “LiveBloggin’ the ICW (http://bloggingtheicw.blogspot.com/). We will be hearing a LOT more from Captain Wally as he follows the AICW during the next several weeks/months. Give his blog a look-see. It is well worth the time of any true cruiser!

    Somedays you simply might as well sleep in. Today would have been a good day for that, and when the alarm went off at half past six, I thought about it. Today appears to be the last day of the winter that just won’t end – cold, dreary, drizzley with a cold and biting wind out of the north. Tomorrow’s forecast is sunny and high 60s. I headed out for Elliot Cut, naturally at the very height of the ebbtide. Elliot Cut is a difficult cut at the best of times if the current isn’t with you, and the current today was between 3.5 and four knots. My boat speed was down to .9 knots at one point – and hovered between 1 and 1.4 knots for almost the entire cut.
    Waiting till the tide switched wasn’t really an option if I wanted to make any distance, as it didn’t reverse itself until nearly 1 pm. I’d lose half the day, so onward I struggled, making three boat lengths a minute. To put that into perspective, normal would be 15 to 18 boat lengths per minute.
Slowly, oh so slowly, Gypsy Wind struggled…I was grateful that this cut is fairly short, less than a half mile…and finally, we came through into the Stono River. Now the wind that I hadn’t felt inside the cut bore down. It was brisk – a Canadian word meaning ‘really damn cold!’
    The tide was still against me but less strong so I was now making about 4.5 knots while watching the wind push mist along the water. This wasn’t fun. Then I noticed poor Aduana shivering and that decided me – I turned around, the speed shot up to 6 knots even as I dropped the engine speed to idle, and we returned to the anchorage to spend the day sensibly, rather than struggle in the cold and wet.
    Cruising is supposed to be fun, and sometimes we forget that in the rush to get somewhere. So, excuse me while I take the pup ashore and we play ball and she chases some squirrels. After that, I’m going to put together a video about what an average day cruising the ICW is like, so those of you who haven’t done this yet can get an idea of how good it can be.
    Do I know how to have fun or what?

    North Edisto River Entrance - Click for Chartview

    The AICW intersects the North Edisto River at Statute Mile 497. You must abandon the Waterway and cruise downstream some 8.5 nautical miles to reach this river’s inlet.

    Cruising News:
    I recently transited the North Edisto R inlet from West to East.
    Both R-6 and R-4 as shown on Chart #11522 are missing. R-2NE is in the position as shown.
    I favored G-9 off Deveaux Bank going thru the deepest water of the middle bank thru the old position of R-6 and on to R-2NE at mid high tide with nothing less than 13′. Ebb tide with NW 10k winds.

  • A Quick Take on Bohicket Marina Village (off the AICW on North Edisto River)

    To access Bohicket Marina Village, cruisers must depart the AICW east/north of the easterly mouth of the Dawho River, and journey more or less south on the North Edisto to Bohicket Creek. It’s then a trek several miles upstream to the marina, but many will consider this sojourn well worth the time, effort and fuel. At least one of the on-site restaurants, the Rosebank Farm Cafe, is truly outstanding!

    We are at Bohicket Marina, which is remote from the locations that Bob mentioned but has nice amenities. Several restaurants in the marina and a grocery store and shops within (long) walking distance.
    I’m a 50 and I’ve had 54’s in the slips on my pier so you should have no problems. Here is a link to the marina website.

    At G-111 – G-113 we saw 4 feet under us
    At G-115 – G-117 we saw 3.5 feet under us
    Running at just above Idle Speed stirred up a lot of mud/sand through most of the area from G-111 G-119

  • Praise for Bohicket Marina Village, off the AICW, departing Statute Mile 493

    Off the North Edisto River in Bohicket Creek, Bohicket Marina Village is located three nautical miles upstream on Bohicket Creek’s southeastern banks, upstream of unlighted daybeacon #8.

    Bohicket Marina, Johns Island (Seabrook/Kiawah) – this facility just keeps getting better. Reds Ice House, a great causal restaurant/bar opened up in the old Privateer location last year and they are off to a great start again this year. There are now bike paths from Bohicket all the way to Kiawah Island. The paths opened last year to Seabrook and Freshfields, which make for a great weekend get away. Freshfields has several restaurants, many shops and a great grocery, all within a walk or easy bike ride from the marina. Both Seabrook and Kiawah are great to ride through and their beaches are close by. Normally we go outside on this trip, but did take the ICW one-way thus far and it was fine the entire way.
