LNM: Shoaling Reported and Temporary Buoys Added to Salt Ponds Entrance Channel, north of Norfolk Harbor, VA


Salt Ponds is bit out of SSECN’s range, but it is a popular western shore storm shelter for northbound cruisers when the waters just north of Norfolk Harbor kick up. The entrance channel is perpendicular to the beach shore and can be intimidating even without the threat of shoaling.

VA – CHESAPEAKE BAY – SALT PONDS – HAMPTON – SHOALING
Shoaling has been reported in the channel into Salt Ponds, Hampton VA, just inside the stone jetty. Depths to 4 feet at low tide have been reported. This shoaling maybe in addition to the shoaling reported on Salt Ponds Marina Resort web site. http://saltpondsmarinaresort.com/contact–directions.html
