I'll sailing to New Bern and have many ideas on what to go on the ICW via dismal swamp and south beyond there. I'll leaving Herrington Harbor North and stop at Solomons island then stop at Tangier Island there where to go on the way to Norfolk where the ICW ditch starts? I have a cruising guide and will look there for advice but thought I'd ask this community as well. We are leaving end of April or 1st week in May 2019

The whole point in going to Tangier is that there isn't too much there. Very laid back, with a small but quite serviceable general store. But nope, not the Super Giant. We stayed there for weeks on our PDQ.

Another reasonable stop is Cape Charles. But there are many choices.

There are plenty of nice creeks up Mobjack Bay. In Norfolk we like to spend a night in either the Lafayette River or Deep Creek before the locks.

lol Spent three days anchored just above the locks at Deep Creek, when locks were damaged after a hurricane.. Dismal Swamp locks were closed also
