Hi there

I'm planning on moving to Empuriabrava next year and will be bringing my boat with me. My main concern is depth of water at the entrance and the canal network. Can anyone advise me please.

Hi Wayne

We have been going to Empuriabrava for holidays twice a year for the past five years we only have a Rib so don't have a draft issue. But I have pasted some useful data below, unless you have something over 26m you should be fine, you will find that after the first part of the canals there are bridges with an air draft of about 2.8m which could restrict you if you are a sailing yacht. Its a very special place and well worth visiting.

Regards

John

Draft: Entrance and first part of main harbour: 3,3 m.
Main port: 2,5 m.
Canals: 1,8 m. Airdraft: Before the bridges: No limit
After the bridges: Maximum 2,80 m. above waterline

Thanks for the info John , that was very helpful. I draw 1.2m so it shouldn't be a problem.

                  Thanks again.....Wayne
