What??? No way! You'll run into multiple tide cycles travelling most of the waterway in a day unless you have a really slow boat & a really short day! As mentioned previously , the OP is only headed from Norfolk to Beaufort (I'm assuming NC & not SC) so tides aren't too much of an issue on that stretch.
