Description

Biscayne Channel leads through the shoals south of Cape Florida into Biscayne Bay. It is partially dredged, but the channel has shoaled. In April 1983, the reported controlling depth was 5 feet.
The channel is marked by lights and daybeacons. Craft whose draft is close to the limiting depth of the channel should exercise extreme caution in navigating it. Several channels leading through the shoals between Biscayne Channel and Key Biscayne are used by local boats.

Biscayne Channel passe à travers les hauts-fonds au sud de Cape Florida dans Biscayne Bay. Il est partiellement dragué, mais le canal a des hauts-fonds. En avril 1983, la profondeur était de 1,5 m.
Le canal est balisé par des lumières et des balises de jour. Les bateaux dont le TE est proche de la profondeur limite du canal devraient
être extrêmement prudents à la man?uvre. Plusieurs canaux menant à travers les hauts-fonds entre Biscayne channel et Key Biscayne sont utilisés par les bateaux locaux.
