It stretches 2,500 miles from Boston to Miami. The Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway is comprised of a system of canals, land cuts, and a series of natural and artificial barrier islands, which provide a protected passage for low-draft vessels wishing to avoid the tumultuous currents of the Atlantic Ocean.
Conceived in the late 18th century, when America's overland roads were treacherous and limited, the Waterway was, in many ways, the nation's first major transport artery--a sort of proto-superhighway. Now, though commercial vessels still ply its passages, it is a favorite haunt of recreational boaters, who relish the reminders of a time when life moved at a slower pace. Join them for a uniquely American journey.
