Port Overview

The port is used for serving the island of La Gonave, both with a ferry-like passenger vessel and local wooden vessels. No international traffic is handled. The port is located very close to the main road (N1) connecting Port-au-Prince and Carriès.

The main wharf (“ferry terminal”) is built on piles, therefore a weight limitation for working with port handling equipment must be kept in mind.

No shore based cargo handling equipment is positioned in the port. Vessel loading / unloading is done manually/manpower.
