Boated through there on our trip down the ICW. Big area, fairly shallow. We were fortunate to do on a calm day. Wind can be a problem, so watch the forecast. It a spectacular, rural area. If you lived there you probably would not ever see all there is to see...Big area.
We ran from Kitty Hawk all the way to Beaufort in 1 easy day. You need a GOOD chart plotter as there are shoals everywhere. Roanoke island is spectacular.

Hertford is on the albemarle sound. Lots good places on the albemarle and not really any shoal or navigational issues until you get closer to the outer banks. Pamlico sound has lots of good places as well but can get a bit rougher.

I live in New Bern and love it. The Neuse river runs to the pamlico and Adams creek that takes you to Morehead and Beaufort. Beautiful area and always fun in the water. You can run in the brackish water or the salt water, island hop around carrot island or head to the cape for sandbar fun.
