Atlantic ICW

Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia.

The Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) stretches from Portsmouth, Virginia to Key West, Florida and serves as a navigable route along its length without many of the hazards of travel on the open sea.

This stretch of water is used often by East Coast cruisers who head South to Florida for the Winter and back North to New England for the Summer. Many boaters prefer to take the Atlantic ICW because the waters are calmer and there are many places, including fun cities and charming towns, to stop along the way. Here we've included marinas in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. Snag-A-Slip is a free, online boat slip reservation site where you can explore awesome marinas on the Atlantic ICW and rent boat slips easily. If you are charting your course or you want to see our marinas on a map, click the interactive map button above!

Not only is this state a convenient stop for boaters cruising up and down the coast, but it is also a travel and boating destination all unto itself. Boaters will want to explore the Outer Banks region, as well as the history-laden and charming towns of New Bern, Washington, Morehead City and more. From open-sea beaches and shipwreck diving sites, to boutique shopping and dining on quaint downtown streets, there's plenty to see and do in North Carolina.
