This is a well protected creek which is entered through a break in the outer reef (see relevant chart). You will pass under a bridge (70'/21m) and, be careful of the power line spanning the creek soon after the bridge.

Navigation under the bridge can be tricky due to silting so always attempt to get local knowledge by calling on VHF and asking directions from other local or visiting yachts.


There is a customs office near the bridge and then proceed immediately by road to Mombassa to complete the immigration formalities.
