Yes, very easy trip, and about 125 statute miles in protected water
(except Charleston Harbor, perhaps), depending on where you're starting and ending exactly. However, Don't expect that you can just blast down there the whole way full throttle...allow for plenty of extra time. The Waccamaw is gorgeous and should be a pleasure. Still pretty, but a little more arduous in the narrow channels the rest of the way. Be especially careful of shoaling in the last cut through Isle of Palms, expecially at mile 450...when in doubt, take it slow (and be in doubt a bit!). A good charting GPS
, a good guidebook (hint), up-to-date info from our website and/or others, and a chart or chartbook will keep you in good water
. Don't forget the tides and current
are significant, although much more so for slowpokes like me and deeper draft
vessels. Have fun and be safe!
