In the early 1800’s the Chesapeake Bay of Virginia and the Albemarle Sound in NC were connected by the Dismal Swamp Canal,boats on intracostal waterway cape carteret nc which was later replaced by a second major canal called the Albemarle and Chesapeake Canal which was much more efficient. Then after the Civil War, North Carolina started some new canal projects and reworked and revamped some of the existing canals with dredging and the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) was formed. There is even a tidal guard lock at the Elizabeth River entrance to the Albemarle and Chesapeake Canal which is accessed through Elizabeth City, North Carolina. The ICW runs about 120 miles from Norfolk, Va., along the rivers, creeks and bays through the Alligator River to the Newport River and into Beaufort, varying in depth all along the way. Some years later, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers went to Congress and presented the next phase of the ICW, which would go from Beaufort, NC all the way to Key West, Florida. The ICW is another beautiful body of water for North Carolina offering many areas to boat from and through and offering homes with magnificent views. There is no way to ever become bored or tired of the sights and sounds and activities of the ICW. One could sit in their yard or on their dock or porch and be totally entertained watching the boats, working barges, fishermen or the dolphins.
