Port Overview

There are currently two ports in Gonaives, one public and one private.  This page refers to the public port.

In 2008, the port was badly hit by the Hurricanes Hanna and Ike which damaged the main infrastructure. In 2012, first activities were taken up by APN to reactivate the small port. The pier head of the jetty still shows damages, however, the two sides of the jetty can be used to more coasters and short sea vessels.
