Think the first 2 pics are definitely Greenspot/Brassy Kingies. 3rd one is a GT.

Now is not a good time to go fishing... said nobody... EVER!!

Good morning guys,

Hope one of you MTB guys can help me with some info please.
I noticed that most of you launch at Club Navel.
Would you be able to tell me what the 2019 launching fees are and what a lunching permit will cost me ?.

Is club Navel better than Escola....?

Also I am struggling to get hold of them regarding secure parking prices for my bakkie and trailer.

I am bringing the family to Santa Maria 15th of June and have arranged for the lodges boat to fetch my wife and daughters. My son and I are planning on taking the boat across the bay.

Is June a good time to fish MTB ?.

Any assistance would be highly appreciated .

Thanks

Heya, not sure on the fees, but the thing to remember is that at Naval you can just about launch anytime / any tide (of course depending on your boat's size, draft etc), now with Escola, you got to time the tides to the tee, as it's very shallow in the actual basin, likewise with Maritimo, you are also at the mercy of the tides - Best to make Naval your only choice and option. You can also leave your vehicle inside.
Happy days!

Also, watch the tides. On June 15ththe low tide will be at 09:10 with 0.8 m. If this is your first launch here, either follow the local boat VERY closely or watch your ploter/sounder. Plenty sand banks as you approach Inhaca. You can get stuck for a long time.

Hi,

Thanks for the info, yes the local boat will be collecting my wife at 13:00, because of the tide.
He wants to collect them at Escola though...I would rather leave my bakkie at  club Navel. It looks much saver there.

You guys wonít happen to have a e-mail or phone number for club Navel would you ? The number on the net just keeps ringing.

Thanks

at naval trailer stays inside the premises and car always stay outside
ar escola nŠutica both car and trailer stay inside
as you will read the launching fees will be cheaper at escola nŠutica
a lot of ZA people have moved their launches to escola nŠutica due to car safety and launch prices
