Troubles on the East End of Taylor Creek (Beaufort, NC)

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 05-04-2010

Yes, Captain Frank is quite right. For at least the last ten years, I’ve discouraged even experienced skippers from attempting to take cruising sized vessels out the eastern end of Taylor Creek. That’s really too bad, as these waters lead to the likes of Harkers Island, the Straits, and eventually Core Sound. These are some of the least discovered waters along the North Carolina coastline, but, then again, after perusing the photos below, you will quickly understand why!

Claiborne…….you have always said that the east end of Taylor’s Creek was a great mystery….thought you would get a kick out of these photos !
Regards,
Frank
