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.
