I've done the trek to the upper harbor twice so far this summer and took the inside route behind Hoffman Island four times. Only on this last trip southbound did I find the water shallower than expected: the depth gauge read about 9 feet so I diverted a bit to the east and was happy for the rest of the trip. ( I only draw 4' and change, but just assumed I was closer to shore than I planned to be. )
