Sidi Daoud

The approach of this fishing port and the water depth does not look very inviting on the Navionic charts.
In reality it is quite easy. The entrance channel is marked with big fixed buoys and when you follow this, it is really easy. Stay close to the green entrance light when entering the port, because the portside is silted.

Depths in the port are good. Overall depths are 2 to 2,5 meter at the berths, and the ones north from the Ice factory even have 4 meter.

In strong North-West winds it is not advisable to enter the port, the harbour master told us from 40 knots and more you can better not try to enter. Below that, or with other directions it should be fine.

I do not know if all the lights work, the harbour master told me they do, but I did not check for myself.
