BAN THAP LAMU. 8°33.736N, 98°13.092E

When entering the estuary, keep well clear of the coral patch on the northwest side of Laem Ao Kham. The point has a light flashing every 4 seconds, but night entry is not recommended unless essential.

Pass well north of Laem Ao Kham on a heading due east towards a red buoy. This marks the beginning of a buoyed channel which turns south following the deep water close to the east coast of the headland.

Pass the Royal Thai Navy jetty (forbidden to yachts) to anchor in 6-9 metres in front of the village of Ban Thap Lamu or across the passage with the other yachts. There’s good holding in mud, with strong tidal currents in the passage running north and south.
