Navigation to St Georges will take the best part of a day and in few places the depth is 1.4 m LW - 3 m HW. Currents in the river can be up to 3 kts. Tides at St Georges are about 2½ hours later than Cayenne.
There are numerous anchorage along the way where you can wait for HW to sail:
St Georges anchorage: in 5 metres in mud by the water taxi jetties (dinghy landing spot).
The Douane (customs) office on the waterfront by the water taxi jetties but clearance is possible only when there is an official is in town. Immigration is in the Police aux Frontieres building on the edge of the town; open everyday 0800-1200 and 1400-1800.
Fuel: in jerry cans from across the river in Brazil by dinghy or water taxi
The fishing boats along the way are very friendly.
