West coast of India

Between Diu Head (from N) and Cape Rama (to S), there is the gulf of Cambay and the largest sea-port on the W coast of India, the port of Mumbai (Bombay), the largest seaport on the W coast of India. An extensive offshore area is being developed for oil production. Numerous oil derricks, oil production platforms, single point moorings, etc., obstruct navigation within the area. Other unlit objects, pipelines, submerged obstructions, and well heads, sometimes marked by buoys, exist in this area; these features are not all charted due to their compelxity and frequent change. Recommended routes have been established by Indian authorities to aid traffic transiting the area, as well as vessels bound to or from the port of Mumbai (Bombay). The Indian government requests that vessels remain 1 to 2 miles to starboard of the tracklines shown on the chart, consistent with safe navigation, and the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea. 23°01.80 N 70°13.39 E

approach. Grant Channel and Sutherland Channel are safer to use than the channels between the banks, as the mariner is able to accurately fix his position from the objects on the coast; Sutherland Channel should be used only by those with local knowledge. The S part of the gulf is deep, but the N part is encumbered with sand banks, which frequently change because of the force of the bores and freshets from the rivers. Deep-draft vessels can proceed up the gulf as far as Piram Island, about 28 miles NNE of Gopnath Point. Local knowledge is necessary for vessels navigating above Gogha, about 6 miles NW of Piram Island.

Caution Considerable shoaling is reported in the entrance of the Gulf of Cambay and mariners should navigate with caution in this vicinity. The sand and banks in the upper part of the gulf are subject to great alterations. Any directions for navigating this area must be considered as general only; local knowledge is necessary. Malacca Banks is the general name for four long narrow shoals lying in and obstructing the entrance of the Gulf of Cambay, between the parallels of 20°20'N and 21°20'N. These shoals, named in order from W, are Western Bank, Narbada Bank, Breaker Bank, and Eastern Bank. Deep channels are between these shoals, but they are narrow at their N ends, and it is inadvisable to use them. Western Bank dries in places. Grant Channel, between Western Bank and the coast NW, is steep-to on both sides, with general depths of 11.3 to 27m. bottom is sand toward the bank and mud toward the Channel off the N end of Western Bank. Depths in Grant Channel between Gopnath Point and Western Bank, 6 miles SSE of Gopnath Point, were reported (2002) to be 1 to 1.5m less than charted. Narbada Bank has a large area of drying sand near its center. Breaker Bank has a long sand bank near its center, which may be seen a long distance from the masthead when the sun shines on it at high water neaps, but it is submerged at high water springs. Depths of 2.7 to 3.3m lie at the N end of Breaker Bank, about 16 miles ENE of Gopnath Point; a drying patch was reported (1954) in this vicinity. A dangerous wreck lies about 5 miles SW of Breaker Bank. Eastern Bank has several shoal patches, some of which dry. Because the depths are deep within 0.2 mile of these shoal patches in many

http://www.sea-seek.com

October 2017

places, soundings give little warning of the approach to these dangers. Sutherland Channel, between Eastern Bank and the coast E, is about 2.5 miles wide at its narrowest part, WNW of Suvali Point. Two lighterage areas, one for general cargo and one for chemical and LPG cargo, which are best seen on the chart, are located about 5 miles W of Suvali Point.

Caution Shoaling, including a drying patch about 300m wide, has been reported (2003, 2006) in an area extending from 2 to 3 miles SW of the SW corner of the charted General Lighterage Area. The coast of the W side of the head of the gulf from Johnston Point to the entrance of the Bhadar River, about 26 miles NNE, is composed chiefly of mangrove jungle, extending several miles inland. The sand bank fronting this coast dries and extends from 1 mile to 4 miles offshore. Mal Bank, the S end of which lies about 7.5 miles E of Johnston Point, is a large sand bank lying in the middle of the head of the gulf, and extends about 4 miles N. There are channels on the either side of Mal Bank, each about 1 mile wide in the fairway, but local knowledge is necessary. Malcolm Channel is the W channel. Khambhat Channel leads NE into the estuary of the Mahi River from the N end of Mal Bank. Khambhat, the chief town in the area, lies on the N side of the estuary of the Mahi River.

The coast between Gopnath Point and Kuda Point, about 28 miles NNE, is low and covered with sandhills for about 18 miles to Mitivirdi; then it is comparatively high, with several ravines close to the coast. The country is flat and cultivated,with many scattered villages mostly surrounded by trees; inlandit is generally from 30 to 61m high. Kuda Point, 10m high, has a thick clump of trees and a white bungalow on it. The trees are conspicuous from N or S, and the bungalow shows well during the forenoon when seen from E. Mallock Reef, about 1.5 miles SE of Kuda Point, lies on the W side of the channel between it and the reef extending NW from Piram Island.

fringed by a few mangrove trees. The lighthouse is conspicuous near the middle of the island; a small village is situated close N of the lighthouse. Reefs surround the island and extend about 2.5 miles NNE, 0.5 mile E, and 1.5 miles SSE from the island. Shoal water, with depths of less than 11m, extends about 7.8 miles SSW from the S end of the reef surrounding Piram Island. The narrow channel between Mallock Reef and Piram Island should not be used without local knowledge as the tide runs through at a great velocity and there is very little slack water.

Mumbai (Bombay) (W India)

Caution.?In the approach to Mumbai (Bombay), either from N or S, lines of strong fishing stakes, surmounted by baskets, which project about 6.1m out of the water, may be encountered anywhere in depths up to 18.3m and sometimes up to 22m. In the immediate approach to the harbor, within the area shown by dashed lines on the charts, no fishing stakes are permitted, but even within this area they are sometimes placed, and so may be encountered before the port authorities have been able to remove them. Occasionally the heads of the stakes are broken off at the waterline.and then they may not be seen above water. All fishing stakes are normally removed each year for the duration of the Southwest Monsoon. Caution is necessary in the harbor and its approaches as many buoys have been reported (2007) missing. In 2001, it was reported that numerous fishing vessels were anchored directly in the inbound and outbound traffic lanes. Numerous wrecks, best seen on chart, lie in the approaches, channels, and adjacent waters of the port of Mumbai (Bombay). Mariners should use caution while transiting these waters. Heavy smog and haze may reduce the visibility in the harbor. It was reported (2001) that heavy pollution and siltation in the harbor prevented the vessel?s depth finder from giving accurate readings. A submarine exercise area is centered 67 miles W of the entrance to Mumbai (Bombay) Harbor. Another submarine exercise area is centered between the Fifty Fathoms Flat and Direction Bank, about 75 miles offshore. Numerous small fishing vessels, with buoyed nets, are likely to be encountered up to 25 miles offshore from Mumbai (Bombay). A depth of 23m was reported in 1987 close W of the 200m depth contour in approximate position 19°00'N, 69°55'E. Mariners are advised not to anchor or fish near the pipelines to avoid damaging them.

The port of New Mangalore, a major all-weather port, is situated about 5 miles NNW of the old Mangalore port. Fairway Lighted Buoy is moored about 4 miles W of the port. Range lights, in line bearing about 079°, at the E side of the port, mark the approach channel through the entrance. A signal station and port radio station are situated on the N entrance point of the port. A white concrete tower lies close S of the S entrance point. Two towers, one of which is conspicuous, lie a short distance inland from the head of the harbor. There is a conspicuous water tower about 0.2 mile S of the S entrance point of the harbor. The harbor is protected by breakwaters that extend about 700m from the coastline at points N and S of the entrance. The port consists of a turning basin, with radius of 245m, dredged to a depth of 15.1m, oil and LPG jetties on the SW side of the lagoon and near the approach channel, and seven berths contained in a basin extending N from the turning basin. The berths are used for general cargo, the export of iron and manganese ore, and the import of materials for a chemical and fertilizer factory.

Depths?Limitations The port is approached by a channel about 4 miles long and 245m wide; it is maintained by dredging to 15.4m and marked by lighted buoys. Several shoal patches, depths of 7.5 to 9.7m, lie close S of the channel and are best seen on the chart. A depth of 15.1m is maintained within the harbor leading from the entrance to the turning basin. It has been reported that the maximum depths allowable for entry into the harbor can be reduced during the Southwest Monsoon (May-September) period so vessels drawing 14m or more should check with the Port Authority for the latest information.

Pilotage Pilotage is compulsory for vessels over 200 grt and is available 24 hours for vessels up to 245m in length. Vessels whose loa exceeds 245m, including http://www.sea-seek.com

Haze settles over the land after sunrise. Even during good weather, the coast remains indistinct until about the middle of the day, making normally conspicuous objects difficult to discern. Mangalore Harbor lies in the backwater formed by the confluence of the Gurpur River and the Netravati River. The port is only of importance to coastal vessels, as it is fronted by a shallow bar between low sandy spits. The port is closed from June through August during the Southwest Monsoon, when the bar is impassable. A shoal, with a depth of 15m, lies 6.5 miles WNW of the entrance to Mangalore. The town of Mangalore is almost entirely concealed from the offing, but the following landmarks are conspicuous: 1. Mangalore Light, a squat, white, masonry tower with black bands, attached to a house resembling a small chapel, about 0.5 mile ENE of the harbor entrance. 2. A 41m high dome, surmounted by the steeple of the Roman Catholic Cathedral, about 0.5 mile N of the light structure. 3.

The Kochi International Marina is a marina in the city of Kochi, located in the eastern coast of the Bolgatty Island. The Kochi Marina is the only marina in India. It's a modern all-weather port and a rapidly growing maritime gateway to peninsular India. Port Control must be contacted on both arrival and departure once in the approach channel. Yachts must anchor for clearance off the steamer point on the north tip of Willingdon Island, opposite the two jetties of the port office and the Malabar Hotel in front of the Port Trust Building. No one must land before clearing Customs, who will come out in a launch. The captain can then go ashore and clear at the port office (open 1000-1700), where port dues must be paid. The Customs and Immigration offices must be visited next. Customs will retain the ship's papers until departure and issue a receipt. The Immigration office is near the railway terminus and landing passes may be issued by them, or, as in 2007, only the passports stamped. After clearance, one may then go to the yacht anchorage south of Bolgatty Island, or the new marina at the Bolgatty Palace Heritage Hotel on the east of Bolgatty Island. Boats drawing more than 6 ft (2 m) should wait for high tide as the channel is shallow in places. Written permission from the Port Captain must be obtained if one moves to another area. With prior warning, yachts planning to call at Kondo Syokai for repair, can call on them for assistance with clearing. You can leave your boat in Cochin and travel inland in India. If you want to leave the boat there and travel out of the country, you will need special permission from the authorities in Cochin. The boat must have a guard on board or be stored in a recognised boatyard/workshop. If planning a day sail from the port, Port Control must be advised in advance, by fax, stating vessel, crew and duration of the trip (in http://www.sea-seek.com

The port of Quilon (Kollam) is a small roadstead lying in the bight close SE of Tangasseri Point. The N and S limits of the port are defined by lines extending in a 247° direction from two boundary pillars. The N pillar and the S pillar lie about 0.7 mile E and 3 miles ESE, respectively, of Tangasseri Point. The W limit is defined by a line extending 180° from the point.

Depths?Limitations Tangasseri Reef, consisting of foul ground and shoal water, extends about 1.5 miles W and 1 mile SW of Tangasseri Point. Pallikall Shoal, with a depth of 2m, lies about 0.7 mile ESE of Tangasseri Point, near the SE end of the coastal reef. A black buoy and a red conical buoy are moored about 1 mile and 1.3 miles SE, respectively, of Tangasseri Point. The port is protected by the Tangasseri Breakwater, extending about 1.1 miles SSE of Tangasseri Point. The breakwater was completely restored and strengthened in 2009 after tsunami damage that had occurred 5 years previous and now has a permanent road laid along the entire length. There is also a lee breakwater extending about 500m SSW of the old Post Office with a wharf, 116m in length, located at the W end of this breakwater. There is a least depth of 8.9m in the fairway of the channel between the buoys and a depth of 8.6m about 0.2 mile SSE of the black buoy. The red conical buoy marks the NW end of a group of dangers, with a least depth of 6.4m, extending ESE. The basin presently accommodates vessels up to a draft of 7m but there are plans (2009) to increase this to 10m. Gamaria Rock, with a depth of 7m and marked close N by a black and white conical buoy, lies about 1.3 miles ESE of Tangasseri Point. The above buoys are in position from October to May. There is heavy surf along the steep beach fronting the bight and landing is dangerous except in native boats.

Kolachel (Colachel) is an open roadstead with anchorage in about 13m in the lee of four small islets. The port is important for the export of ilmenite sand. Vessels of 10,000 15,000 grt have called here. Landing during good weather is fairly easy as the rocks off the village form a practical breakwater to the heavy surf on the coast.

Depths?Limitations The depths shoal gradually from 21m in the outer anchorage to 10m about 0.2 mile offshore in the area E of the town. Several rocks, above and below-water, extend up to about 0.3 mile S and SW of Kolachel. Kurusukal, 6m high and surmounted by a white shrine carrying a black cross, lies about 183m S of Kolachel Light. Ahnakal, 3m high, lies close SSE of Kurusukal, with a rock awash close SE of it. Pulleri, 1m high, the SE danger in the approach to Kolachel, lies about 0.3 mile SSE of Kurusakal. Patna Rock and Constance Rock, with depths of 2m, lie about 183m W and 0.5 mile WNW, respectively, of Pulleri.

Signals Storm signals, using the Brief System, are displayed from a flagstaff 0.4 mile E of Kolachel Light.

Muttam Point (Muttum Point), 35m high and with steep red cliffs, lies about 5.5 miles SE of Kolachel. The village of Muttamtura lies on the point. A light, with a racon, is shown on the point. A group of palmyra trees on high red ground, about 1 mile N of the light structure, forms a good landmark which can usually be seen above mist which may obscure the lighthouse. Muttam Point has been reported to give a good radar response at 18 miles. Vessels in the vicinity of Muttam Point, at night, should not approach into depths of less than 45m due to the dangers W and SW of the point. Crocodile Rock, a dangerous sunken rock about 3 miles SW of Muttam Point Light, is the outermost danger; the sea does not break over it in calm weather. Adunda Rock, 5m high, lies about 1.3 miles SW of the point. It is difficult to identify from seaward, and foul ground extends about 0.2 mile NNW from it. Kota Rock, 6m high and steep-to on its W side, lies about 1.3 miles WNW of Adunda Rock. Vessels should not pass inside of Adunda and Kota Rocks.
