Description

Al Hamriyah is a village about 7 miles SSW of Umm al Qaywayn. 
The tower of a new fort, with a flagstaff and a white minaret, are conspicuous. 
There is a creek at the S end of the village which connects at HW with Khawr Ajman. The creek was dredged (2004) to 3.5m.
A channel, dredged to a depth of 9m (2009) and marked by lighted buoys, extends ESE to the creek entrance from a position about 0.5 mile N of the entrance to Al Hamriyah LPG Terminal
and then SE from the creek entrance to a main basin about 0.8 mile long, with dredged depths of 5 to 9m. Two shorter basins, with dredged depths of 7 to 9m and 5m, respectively, extend NNE from the N side of the main basin.
An unlighted mooring buoy is located 10 miles offshore NNW of Al Hamriyah.
Caution.—For a minimum distance of 2 miles from the harbor, arriving vessels should maintain a track of not less than 120°, while departing vessels should maintain a track of not less than 300°. Vessels will pass NE of the spoil ground produced by the reclamation work.
