Elizabeth River No Wake Zone

Recommended Posts

When traveling north on the intercoastal where does the no wake zone for the Elizabeth River start and end?


I thought it started just before Tidewater Yacht Marina, but I'm not positive. I have no idea where it ends.

when you are traveling North on the ICW all waters around terminals and the norfolk naval ship yard in Portsmouth is a 6 knot no wake zone. That means the no wake zone starts shortly after the Gilmerton Bridge, you go past all of the industrial area, Ocean Marine Yacht Center, both ferry landings and the dry docks, tidewater yacht, waterside, and the no wakezone ends just before the Red can off of Hospital Point. There are some very angry tug captains and boat owners who really get after people for hauling a wake through all of that area on the southern branch so be careful! It really is a pain to idle all the way through that section, but what can you do?
