I just know here in South Jersey, looking out at the Absecon Inlet between Atlantic City and Brigantine, before the economy tanked and gas went to $5+ dollars a gallon, you could walk across the inlet from AC to brigantine without getting wet due to all the boats.

now-a-days, there might be a dozen out there
