Successful Stay in Turnagain Bay, Neuse River, AICW Statute Mile 167

Turnagain Bay is a seldom visited sidewater of the Neuse River, almost directly opposite the ICW’s entrance into the Neuse at Maw Point Shoal.

Cruising News:
This is a very flat landscape of marshes and one hammock. It is a nice place to hide when the Pamlico is acting up. Soft mud bottom holds extremely well. Very pleasant when it’s cool. Imagine the mosquitoes will drain you dry on a warm afternoon.

You’re right about the mosquitoes, Jim and Talley. I anchored in upper Turnagain Bay near the cut-through to West Bay last October and was eaten alive. I have never seen mosquitoes so dense, and I’m from South Louisiana. The entrance to Turnagain Bay was quite shoal, I dropped sail and motored in real slow, saw some 5 foot water but my CD25 draws less than 3 1/2 so I got through it. I poked my nose into the West Bay canal, but turned back as I realized if it was blocked or shoaled too shallow I’d have to back out – it’s too narrow to turn even a CD25. Other than that, a great trip! Seriously, it’s some of the most remote and beautiful lowland scenery I have seen in North Carolina.
