The Maputo Port Development Company SARL is the port authority responsible for the operations of the Port of Maputo. Two access channels lead into the Bay of the Port of Maputo from the Indian Ocean. The North Channel is about 40 kilometers long and 10.1 meters deep, and the Port of Maputo’s South Channel is about 20 kilometers long and 8 meters deep. Both are well-marked, but vessels will need up-to-date information on conditions in the South Channel before attempting to enter there.
