Absecon Creek, which flows into the northwest side of Absecon Bay, is crossed by three fixed bridges, about 1.5 miles above the mouth, at Absecon; least clearance is 3 feet. A marked channel with reported depths of about 5 feet leads across Absecon Bay to the mouth of the creek. In 1999, the reported midchannel controlling depth in the creek was 5 feet from the mouth to the bridges; the creek is reported navigable by small outboards for about 2 miles above the bridges.
