I have been up there a few years ago, you have to get your tides right as it dries out, best to get a chart for the area. I got an Imray one that just covers the harbour area, its ideal if you are on holiday there and plan on staying local.

I've not been up the estuary, but like many of them this end it'll dry.

I always use a combination of google earth, to get a look, feel of the place. Identify channels, areas I fancy going, pubs etc then walk this through on the Navtronics web app Navionics Webapp which can be printed, laminated and taken if required.

Hi,
Lots to be aware of:
Rocks at the sea end of the estuary only, but well marked, inside safe
The bar at the mouth of the estuary can be hazardous on an ebb tide with a stiff southerly wind, respect is due, mostly calm within estuary unless southerly blow
Frogmore, kings bridge, southpool accessible to approx +/- 2hrs either side of tide, kingsbridge more, check charts & tables all worth a visit, pubs in all as far as you can get
Habour dues payable, launching at many places south sands beach, mill bay, town slip at batson , kingsbridge small slip, frogmore on tide southpool on tide

I could go on

Lots to do in a sib enjoy

As far as I'm aware after years of visiting there are no restrictions for beaches although some are private but allow public access.

Launching at Batson slip is free and big wide concrete slip. Parking available. Loads to see and do.

Check tides and have a trip along south Pool Creek to the Millbrook Inn great food and super for people watching.

Enjoy!
