Deep water is a term that is supposed to mean there is at least three feet of water at a normal low tide. Unfortunately many property listings do not make it clear if the property is actually located on deep water or if it just has views of deep water. Many buyers are looking for homes on deep water so they can have a private dock for direct access to the water by boat. Please check with me on any listing that uses the term "deep water" to find out what kind of water access you may have. Deep water rivers and creeks are all along the back side of the island on the sounds, the intracoastal waterway and deep rivers that run inland.
