I believe the Virginia cut project depth is 12 feet as some pretty deep draft barges go through there.

Once to the Albemarle Sound, you can always just take the Outer Banks route versus the ICW if uncomfy with the narrow cuts and tree stumps. But barges do use the ICW.

My guess is the shallowest spots you will hit is from just north of Coinjock in Currituck sound till you hit Albemarl Sound.

Study the charts and controlling depths is the onlt way to feel safe and follow up with a call to the ACOE for recent soundings.
