Port Control

Early contact with the Harbour Master for all cruise vessels is essential to discuss any tidal restrictions on proposed berthing dates.

The Port also has a secure landing stage for cruise vessel tenders wishing to land or collect passengers for larger vessels anchored out in the bay.

Aberdeen Harbour ISPS approved facilities with a range of support service companies for the Cruise Operators.


Aberdeen Harbour operates a compulsory pilotage service for vessels over 60 metres in length. One hour’s notice is required for pilotage.

Aberdeen Harbour

Porpoises, seals, ducks and swans playing in the harbour are just part of the welcome committee for cruise ship visitors. The high environmental standards of Aberdeen City and Shire are noticeable from the moment the passenger reaches the port.

With a recorded history dating back to 1136AD Aberdeen Harbour has evolved through both trade and investment into a world-class port.

As a port-of-call for cruise ships and a major roll-on/roll-off ferry terminal, it handles around 140,000 passengers a year.
