Tuckerton Creek empties into the west side of Little Egg Harbor about 4 miles northwest of Mile 49.4. A dredged approach, marked by lights, extends 1.6 miles southeastward from the mouth of the creek to the north end of Story Island Channel. In 1998-1999, the centerline controlling depth was 3 feet to the mouth of the creek; thence in 1977-1999, 1 foot to Parkers Landing, 0.9 mile above the entrance; thence 2.5 feet to Scow Landing, 1.6 miles above the entrance; and thence .5 foot to the milldam at Tuckerton, 1.8 miles above the mouth. Overhead power cables, about 0.6 mile above the mouth, have a least clearance of 50 feet.
Cross currents may be experienced in the approach channel to Tuckerton Creek. A speed limit of 8 miles per hour is prescribed for the channel.
