Port Tobacco River, at the head of the bight, has depths of 7 feet for 1.6 miles and thence 5 to 3 feet for another 1.3 miles. A light and daybeacons mark the channel.
Chapel Point, on the east side of Port Tobacco River 1.2 miles above the mouth, is a summer resort. Port Tobacco, 4.4 miles above the entrance, is now the head of practical navigation.
