    • Cattle Pen Creek Anchorage (Statute Mile 625.5)

      As you will see below, Captain Chris reports that the charted shoal at the entrance to Cattle Pen Creek, from the AICW, seems to be growing to the south and southwest. Passing Waterway cruisers, and particularly those bound for the anchorage on Cattle Pen Creek, should take these newly augmented shallows into careful account.

      At the entrance to Cattle Pen Creek, the shoal to the north seems have made out toward the channel.  The USACE line on C-Map ran us through 7.7 foot (4.4 MLLW) water at half tide falling. A turn to port (northbound) found deeper water.

        i didnt’ get into the creek, too narrow for me to anchor but passing thru the ICW, i never saw less than 9′ MLW for a short while, abeam the creek entrance. Plenty of water everywhere else on the ICW.
        looking at the charts, R128 is fairly out there over some shallow waters so you need to give it a wide berth, saw about 15′ MLW 120′ off R128.
