The area is 303 square kilometres (117 sq mi), most of which is in Norfolk, with over 200 kilometres (120 mi) of navigable waterways. There are seven rivers and 63 broads, mostly less than 4 metres (13 ft) deep.
Water depths and navigation notes provided by the Broads AuthorityWroxham Broad has an area of 34.4 hectares (85 acres) and a mean depth of 1.3 metres. It lies to the west of the Bure, with two navigable openings between river and broad.
Areas that I have had issues running around in a tri-keel sailboat with 1.1 draft are Dilham, Sutton Staithe #1, Stalham Staithe (very bad in places) and half way along River Chet at ebb tide.
