Has anyone here done the Albemarle Loop in the Albermarle sound in North Carolina. If so, is the trip worth it. I know any trip on the water in your boat is worth it. But I would like to know about this one.

I lived 4 years on the "Ditch" between the Currituck and the North River which opens to the Albemarle. Loved that area.I know that it gets shallow very quickly past the markers between the sounds and the Currituck..... It was under 3 ft almost everywhere depending in the winds. Never explored the canals/ river much but while helping out at Midway Marina I heard boaters talking about "Duck Weed" ......little green balls the size of BB's that could cover the surface wreaked havoc on anything drawing raw water through it ( fouling pumps, blocking intake screens etc) with sail boaters seeming to have it worse. I'd seen it but never on the sound/ open water, even the shallows were clear. I remember them saying they loved the area but next time would check ahead on how bad the Duck Weed was. All in all it's a beautiful area! I miss it dearly. Enjoy!

Lots of small sleepy towns.Nice way to prep for THE LOOP.Doesnt take long to do.Just a few days.Doing the chesapeake bay loop is more fun and has a compo of villages and big party towns.Lots more to do and see in the summer.What ever one you do,will be an adventure. Good luck
