Knapps Narrows- Chesapeake Bay

Knapps Narrows has a bad shoaling problem, especially on the west side. The Narrows ATONs have been rearranged to allow any access to the Narrows. Water at low tide is as low as 3 feet. The east side has about 5 feet at normal low tides. I don't recommend deep draught vessels transiting the Narrows. Even shallow draught vessels should use extreme caution.

Re: Knapps Narrows- Chesapeake Bay

Good to know. I've been through there several times last summer and thought I would ground out - it appears that it has shoaled even more.
