The much needed dredging of Swinomish Channel has been completed by the Army Corp of Engineers, much to the relief of owners of deep draft boats. The new controlling depth is 12 feet. A survey of the channel and updated charts will be published soon.
We recently cruised through the channel after the dredging was completed. They seemed to have dredged all of the “high spots” including one pesky one across from Shelter Bay.
