Description

A good place to wait for the tide to rise and depths in the Moroni approach channel to improve before proceeding up river. 

The shallower water here is much more settled than further offshore, even during trade winds. 

Keep clear of the lateral marker buoys. 

Good holding in mud. 


Offers protection from wind directions

We failed to sail here slowly enough in strong currents from Kourou and arrived with insufficient charted depths to enter the approach channel. Dropped our anchor and slept for a couple of hours. Proceeded to St Lauren after sun rise.
