Following on from the conversation on the VHF net this morning these are the waypoints for crossing the bar that we have used for many years

Entering the Rio Dulce

Rio Dulce tides
All times are local see http://tbone.biol.sc.edu/tide/tideshow.cgi?site=Rio+Dulce+entrance%2C+Guatemala

Waypoints
Note

The Sea Buoy moves regularity and is not always there, we ignore it and use these waypoints

1. 15 50 100N 88 43 960W (out near the Sea Buoy)

2. 15 49 299N 88 44 734W (starting point for crossing bar at Livingston coming down river)

Do not turn in towards the town too soon, wait until you are level with the Texaco dock as per Freya guide; However, the Texaco dock does not have a sign anymore, Look for a rusty barge with fuel pumps on it

Anchor off or near the fuel dock. The further East towards the sea the shallower it gets
