Description

Unijski Kanal leads between Otok Unije and Otococi Srakane, at the W side, and Otok Losinj, at the E side.

This passage is partially landlocked and affords good shelter for a large number of vessels. It is reported to be a refuge for fishing vessels.

Anchorage can be taken nearly anywhere, according to draft and shelter required, but the bottom close to the shore of Otok Losinj is reported to be rocky.

The currents in the channel are tidal and are affected by the winds. The flood current is reported to sometimes attain a rate up to 2.5 knots.

Loaded tankers greater than 500 gross tons are prohibited from using Unijski Kanal.

Unijski Kanal passe entre Otok Unije et Otococi Srakane, sur le côté W, et Otok Losinj, sur le côté E.
Ce passage est partiellement enclavé et offre un bon abri pour un grand nombre de navires. On dit qu'il serait un refuge pour les navires de pêche.
On peut mouiller à peu près partout, selon le TE et l'abri nécessaire, mais au fond près du rivage de Otok Losinj le fond est rocheux.
Les courants dans le chenal sont influencés par la marée et par les vents. Le courant de crue peut atteindre parfois 2,5 noeuds.
Les pétroliers chargés de plus de 500 tonnes de jauge brute ont interdiction d'utiliser Unijski Kanal.
