Anybody know Aberdovey?

Hi All, just planning a fun trip this w/e 4th June. We're in high springs with probably a quiet sea. We are thinking of going from Pwthelli to Aberdovey. Because of a water depth sensor we can't beach the rib 5.5m. We are staying overnight in Aberdovey and leaving mid day ish Sunday . high water 5m is at 8 am. Low water 1m 3.30pm. In truth we,re not time critical and if the weather is nice, we'll stroll down the coast. My main concern is Aberdovey. Anyone any idea where I can moor it overnight? I presume we'd have to row in/out. Would anyone be able to help? Happy to pay! There is four adults and their clobber. Ive tried to contact Aberdovey ribbers with no joy. I'm guessing its best to arrive there low water so you can see the see bed below you. Ive got a good set of waders if that helps.! Help much appreciated as always.Regards Nik

hi dovey is tidal can moor in estruary call but don't know how much water will be in there I live in barmouth we only have a central channel with water when low tide and the bar cant be crossed coming from pwhelli you have to cross sarn badrig to which on low tide is dodgy if stuck by it cross close to the beach at shell island also some dogdy rocks off the point past llangwyril stay offshore good point though the dolphins are in the bay and just off pwhelli is rocky little island
should have the seals on well worth the trip breath taking scenery in the mawdach estruary regards Ian

Or you could give Aberdyfi Harbourmaster a call - Will Stockford, on 01654 767626 - very friendly and he can give you the low-down on access etc.

I've not been into Aberdyfi for a while myself - and never needed to overnight there - but Will can e-mail you their latest chart showing the current bouy positions etc (updated a week or two ago), and can also advise on access times etc.

As twigg said - you'll need a chart if your crossing Sarn Badrig, and Sarn Y Bwlch has some unexpected house-sized boulders on it - which can catch people out...

Dolphins have been seen out in the bay most days this week - so you should have a great time!!
