The inside passage of the Delmarva features the ultimate in shallow-draft cruising behind its barrier islands. The bays, cuts and rivers along this stretch are relatively wild and rarely explored by cruisers primarily because depths are so shallow. The intriguing island names along here–Chincoteague, Assateague, Assawoman, Machipongo–are all Algonquin in origin, although most specific meanings have been lost to time. The best known, Chincoteague, is thought to mean simply “beautiful land across the water.”
