Within the harbour the salinity varies from 1000 to 1025 depending on the season and state of tide, declared maximum draft however are basis salt-water density.
A Minimum under keel clearance of “10 % of the ship’s max draft” will be maintained at the all time of berthing. While alongside berth minimum clearance of 50 cm is maintained. Maximum acceptable draft is basis the Lowest Low Water for the month.Actual berthing draft may be higher basis tide. Minimum Entrance Channel Depth at Chart Datum for MMPT, South Basin and West Basin is declared monthly by the port.
