And it is very beautiful (sometimes remote). Let us know how it works out. I was on a schedule too. It's a delivery, not a cruise.
Any special advise on picking the side streams? Or as long as the depth as ok and it was getting dark and you weren't in the main channel you figured you were OK?

Pretty much. There were two we rejected. One due to strong current and potential commercial traffic, the other because it appeared to be too close to the channel.
