Tide

Taman port has negligible tidal variations.

Weather Restrictions

As the port has no breakwater or any shelter, port is affected by southerly winds and all vessels alongside the jetties are highly exposed to swell and waves. So berthing can be prohibited or cargo operations may stop and vessel may be instructed to leave the berth and shift to anchorage until weather improves. Taman is an ice free port.

Working Hours

Taman Port operates 24/7 with two shifts:

  • 1st shift 08:00 – 20:00 lt
