Expect strong currents pushing west along this stretch of coast.

In Feb 2019 during our journey from Kourou to St Laurent we experienced a current of around 4kts for most if the way. This can make for a very fast passage but planning arrival times quite tricky. 

We were later advised that the currents produce eddies and can range in speed considerably different distances from shore. 

Also note the anchorage marked off shore at the entrance to Moroni River approach channel in case of early arrival.
