Shoaling has been reported by ACOE Survey in Lynnhaven Basin and connected tributaries, south of the Lesner Bridge. Depths of 3.1 – 5.2 feet extend into channel from Pleasure House Creek eastbound to Long Creek Light 6 (LLNR 10170), in Crab Creek, Lynnhaven Inlet and Long Creek.

Depths of 1.4 – 5.0 feet observed in Long Creek side channel in the vicinity of Fish House Island. Navigation of the area requires extreme caution due to shoaling and the frequently shifting nature of these shoals because of weather and tidal currents. SEC VA BNM 114-20. Chart 12254
