Jaigarh Bay (W India)

Characteristics

Description

Jaigarh Bay is entered between Jaigarh Head and Bhandarawadi Point, about 1.8 miles NE.
The estuary of the Shastri River, which flows into the head of the bay, forms a sheltered, convenient harbor, fairly easy to access, even during the Southwest Monsoon, for vessels of about 3.4m draft with local knowledge.

The bar of the Shastri River extends NNE from close W of Jaigarh Fort to close E of Katane Reef, which dries 0.6m about 0.2 mile SW of Bhandarawadi Point.

A channel leads E across the S end of the bar about 0.2 mile offshore and had a least depth of 3.7m in 1964, but it is subject to change.

Mora Sands, which dry 1.2m, extend about 0.6 mile W of the NE entrance point of the Shastri River, leaving a navigable channel about 183m wide between Mora Sands and Jaigarh.

Caution.—Vessels approaching Jaigarh Bay from the S should not close Karhateshwar Point within 0.3 mile to avoid foul ground.
