Binge Bay (W India)

Characteristics

Description

Binge Bay lies between Binaga Point and Arge Cape, 2.5 miles SE.
A restricted area, into which entry is prohibited, extends from a position about 0.5 mile SE of Karwar Head to Kwada Point.
A major naval base, which includes shipbuilding and repairs facilities, is located on the NE side of the bay. The base is approached through a dredged channel initially heading N between Anjadip Island and Round Island, then NE and E to the Naval Jetty. This channel has maintained depths of 14m in its outer part E of Anjadip Island, 13m in a short stretch W of
Round Island, and then 12m from Round Island to the Naval Jetty.
The outer part of the channel is marked by lighted buoys, unlighted buoys, and range beacons in line bearing 359°. North Breakwater connects Binaga Point with the N extremity of Anjadip
Island; South Breakwater connects the SE extremity of Round Island with the NW extremity of Arge Island.

Anchorage can be obtained about 0.4 mile ENE of Round Island, in a depth of 11.7m, mud. A prohibited anchorage area lies about 0.4 mile SW of the Naval Jetty.
