The maximum water depth of 10 m at berth no. 6 and berth 8/9 as well as the maximum total quay length of 365 m are most advantageous for cruise liners as they obviate the need for estuary and pilot services.
Passengers proceed via a covered ship-to-shore gangway at the ferry and cruise liner terminals straight into the modern reception building.
Parking areas for coaches are right beside the berth from where bus rides across the island start.
