PANJIM: The Captain of Ports Department has notified that the Aguada Bar will be open for all water-borne traffic with effect from midnight of September 16, 2018.

It has also notified that the lighthouses of Campal, Tejo Front, Tejo Rear, Reis Magos, Penha de Franca and Aguada Beacon will function from September 16, and that the Old Aguada Lighthouse located inside the fort exhibits a fixed white light on the outer wall of the structure which is visible over an area of 153 degrees. 

“Mariners are particularly warned to keep well to the seaward of such line giving wide berth to the shoals of outer patches, amee shoals and sunchi reefs. Mariners should be aware that the line traversing the new Aguada Lighthouse and the Aguada Beacon is not a clearing line for the shoals and under no circumstances should mariners navigate along such line,” a statement by the Department of Information & Publicity states. It is also notified that navigation through the Cumbarjua canal under the Banastarim bridge is banned except with prior permission of the Captain of Ports.
