Rabat river, is it still safe to enter at low water slack?

Hello all,

Just hoping there's people here who've been to Rabat recently. A lot of the data says it's a nightmare getting in but recent comments on Noonsite say the river is now dredged. We draw 2.0m would it be safe for us to enter at low water / slack.

Reason for this is we're thinking of heading down from Gib tomorrow, looks like good winds we think?

155 miles later at our boat speed we'd miss high tide so would need to enter at low.

Thanks in advance for any updates to this.

Please check out our blog if you have a few spare moments:
