Rio Haina Port


ANCHORAGE:

It is suggested that the vessel anchor off the port of Santo Domingo which is only about 6 miles away to the east of Rio Haina. Anchorage at Haina is considered unsafe and only to be used in case of emergency.

PILOTAGE:

Pilot and harbor master can be contacted by radio channel 16. Pilot boards the vessel about 1 mile from the harbor entrance from a small boat of about 35 feet in length.

RESTRICTIONS:

Entry and departure allowed 24 hours a day but tankers movement are restricted to daylight hours only.

STOWAWAYS:

Unfortunately, all ports within the Dominican Republic are facing drastic problems related to stowaways. The unauthorized boarding of vessels, while at roads, or in port, are the most serious hazard you shall have to face. Prior to sailing the vessel will be boarded by a team of Dom. Rep. Navy personnel who shall perform a ship search for stowaways. However, the best way to minimize the risk of stowaways is by hiring private security service which can be arranged by the agent on a no cure/ no pay basis.
