Cedar Island, NC

Hello - I am looking to sail to Cedar Island, NC. That said, although I have maps, there are few concerns:

1. The channel leading into Cedar Island Bay looks shallow, narrow and not very well marked

2. I don't have firsthand knowledge of the area


I spoke to the owner of a restaurant called "Quality Seafood" who said I could dock there overnight, but I am concerned about having to navigate through that channel into Cedar Island Bay.

Perhaps my concern is unfounded in reality? Is there a better place to dock or tie out for one evening?

Thank you for all your help and expertise. This community has helped me in the past and the knowledge of this forum is remarkable.

Thank you,
synapse

What is the draw on your sailboat? It is a very confusing area which changes quite often. Locals sometimes mark the channel with PVC pipes. Look out for crab pots. Proceed slowly and keep looking at your depth all the time. Seek protected anchorage because that area gets a nasty chop when wind picks up. Best of luck to you.

kriscross - you are right, I should of added the information regarding the draw initially. My boat draws 3.5 feet. Do you think this is do-able?

Yes, very doable - just go slow and watch the depth.
