What a wonderful and underrated town with a wonderful historical centre with lots of character.
The port is about 15 miles from the entrance of the river. A buoyed channel for cargo vessels marks the route with a minimum depth at high tide of over 4m. While night entry is possible, it is not recommended as buoys closer to Saint Laurent are not lit. Stay close to the French side for depth.
Warning: fishing nets when approaching the Maroni river's safe water mark.
