Notice to Mariners

Port of Gippsland Lakes

Locations:  Lakes Entrance Bar

DATE:  29 August 2022

DETAILS: Mariners are advised that following the recent bathymetric survey carried out on 26th August 2022 the leading “lights in line” have been aligned to Line 5 on a bearing of 352°(T) to the Flagstaff.
Least depths through the Line 5 transit are 4.9m LAT. Please see the latest bathymetric survey indicating the line 5 transit attached to this Notice to Mariners.
“Tommy Norton” will be concentrating dredging operations in the areas of the “Green Light” transit lines and the design channel.
Mariners are directed to stay clear of the “Tommy Norton” during dredging operations and to request approval to pass from the Master on VHF Ch16.
Please take note of the attached bathymetric survey which indicates the Leading Line 5 and depths (LAT) through that transit.
For the purpose of the bathymetry LAT (Lowest Astronomical Tide) is “zero tide”. True depths are calculated by adding the height of tide at Lakes Entrance for any given time.
Mariners are advised to take extra precaution when crossing the Bar at Lakes Entrance, noting that the best time to cross the bar is during daylight hours at slack water in the entrance channel and swells less than 1.5 metres,

Near real time wave, tide and weather conditions are available on the Gippsland Ports Website at:
