 MIURA DOWN THE DITCH AND BEYOND

"Now we will write about "The Ditch." The Ditch is that part of the Atlantic ICW (Intracoastal Waterway) that stretches along the southern part of the east coast of the United States from Norfolk (Mile 0) in Virginia to Miami in Florida (Mile 1089) . The other parts of the ICW are from New York that, except for the shallowest-draft vessels, requires going offshore when passing the state of New Jersey. The ICW then continues inland via the Delaware and Chesapeake Bays to Norfolk. Beyond Miami the ICW continues to Key West. The Ditch makes it possible to travel along the east coast without ever having to enter the Atlantic Ocean."
