Sutton Creek/Perquimans River Anchorage – Claiborne’s Review

Sutton Creek cuts the Perquimans River’s northeastern banks northwest of charted White Hat Landing. This stream’s lower reaches can provide adequate overnight anchorage for craft drawing less than 4 feet in all but strong southwestern breezes. Winds from this quarter blow directly into the creek’s mouth and make for a decidedly uncomfortable evening. Minimum depths of 5 feet can be expected in the unmarked entrance channel, but it’s all too easy to wander into only 4 feet of water. The creek’s shores are flanked by a handsome collection of dense cypress trees, now sprinkled with an attractive selection of private homes.
For best depths, drop anchor in the wide southwesterly portion of the creek before the stream begins to narrow. Depths here run around 5 feet. Farther upstream soundings quickly deteriorate to 4 to 4½-foot levels.
