I've spoken to many people who hug the coast and go around. Their recommendation is to go through the canal if you can do it, but as long as the weather is OK and the waves low, hugging the coast is OK. It's best to talk to people with local knowledge for the exact route though. When we went around Cape May we went with the sea buoys, but were listening to all the people hugging the coast over the VHF. A few people hooked up with others with local knowledge by doing general broadcasts on chan 9 as they approached Cape May.
