About

Cruising the ICW, or more formally, Cruising the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway.  Most cruisers think of the ICW from Norfolk, VA to Miami, FL.  While arguably recognized as the most popular cruising segment of the ICW, it links to intracoastal waterways as far North as the Cape Cod Canal.  The goal of this blog is to share stories of destinations, attractions, restaurants, “watering holes,” marinas, events, and boats that might take you cruising or exploring the beautiful water routes from Key West to the Canadian border.  We’re a work in progress, so bear with us, and don’t hesitate to tell us what you’d like us to cover.

Welcome aboard!  We’re glad you’ve discovered us!

Oh Captain My Captain

    Just purchased s Mainship 350. Will be cruising south to Key West and the Bahamas this winter and north to Cape Cod next summer. Looking forward to tips from fellow boaters in each direction.

    • Jim…Congratulations on the new purchase! I envy your plan. Personally, I love the Cape, but would also like to spend a week or two in the Nantucket Harbor. Send me pics of your travels, and if you create a blog or website for your boat/travels, I’ll link you to CruisingTheICW and TheWriteBoat.

    Can the intracoastal front NJ to FL be done in a 22 Ft cabin cruiser

    • Bob… Since I’ve been neglecting CruisingTheICW, I’m guessing this is a VERY delinquent response, but yes, you could cruise from NJ to FL in a 22 foot cabin cruiser. I have an old friend from Oak Island, NC that cruises the ICW in his 19-foot center console. Of course, he and his wife stay in hotels and bed & breakfast, rather than sleeping on their boat. Regardless of what you’re cruising, take time to plan, and read some of the stories of others that cruise the ICW.

  4. Hello All who often travel the Dismal Canal,

    My husband and I own a home on the left as you exit the Deep Creek Canal to head toward Norfolk. We are considering opening up a stop over and maybe even a sleep over for those coming and going into the canal. We have a dock, boat ramp, kayaks, jet ski, paddle boat, pool, hot tub and separate living quarters.

    I am asking for your opinions on if you feel this would be beneficial to you? Is there any kind of service you could use, i.e. laundry, restock supplies, ride into town, etc. Please reply to this or email me at laurak2323@gmail.com.

    Would much appreciate your feedback!!!

    Laura
