On-Site Report – AICW Passage Through Jekyll Creek and Jekyll Harbor Marina, Statute Mile 683

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 11-08-2012

There has been much discussion recently (see link below) on depths through Jekyll Creek, a perennial AICW Problem Stretch. Thanks to our good friend, Sonny Reeves, who is a full-time resident at Jekyll Harbor Marina, A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR!, we have up-to-date, on-site reports that some are finding usable depths through this stretch. Of course, others report a very different story, so we still strongly suggest that cruisers time their passage of Jekyll Creek for mid to high tide!

Update on Jekyll Harbor Marina:
Here is a loaded barge going north, draft 8ft, Tug draft 8 ft going via ICW at Jekyll Harbor Marina. The tide is out low at over 6 ft. going to a low of 7.
He will pass green 19 by taking center of channel. The 90 ft “Adventurer ” just left the dock headed south. Jekyll Harbor is a great place to be and enjoy for the winter. We caught 3 # of shrimp in 20 mins last night with a cast net a half a mile from the dock.
Bike ride today saw deer and an alligator. Fishing is great, Reds and Trout are catching! Sunsets are remarkable. The beach is a 1/2 mile bike ride away and almost deserted. We are looking at 70s this weekend.
