A small town with a Caribbean flavour coconut water street stalls and reggae music playing.
You are advised to enter the river during the day and stay within the marked channel (dredged to 6m). Note the marks are not shown on charts but were in place and mostly lit. The tidal rise is 2.5m at springs and 1.3m at neaps. The flood sets SW at 3kt and the ebb N at up to 5kt.
Anchor: before the bridge on either side in 2.5 m.
Ashore: several small supermarkets, bars, street food, a Digicell cell phone shop etc. Money can be changed at the travel agent about halfway along the main street. Fresh produce is limited in the town itself but can be found at the produce market on Stelling Rd, about 2km from the town centre. Minibus to New Amsterdam.
