Shallow Draft Destinations

Hello Everyone,

I always hear to be careful in the Florida Keys and Bahamas with your draft since many places routinely get shallow but what other destinations are notoriously shallow? What are the other places where a deep draft becomes challenging?

Re: Shallow Draft Destinations

Depends on what you call deep draft. We're 6'6" but manage to visit the places we like in the Abacos.

Re: Shallow Draft Destinations

I'm sorry I guess I wasn't clear. What global destinations does a deep draft have challenges sailing in. For example be careful in Fiji it can get shallow quick or like everyone says the Bahamas can be shallow watch where you are going and plan carefully.
