Berths and seaway canal
The port is linked with the sea by a 27-mile canal. The canal is minimum 85 meters wide and minimum 11.6 meters deep. The width of the Main Channel from the open sea to the Coal Harbor basin is 80-120 meters with the maximum draught of 11.0 meters allowed for ships. The Port of Saint-Petersburg can accommodate ships of the following dimensions:
- Lenght - 304 м

The plans for reconstruction of the sea channel to the port include the future expansion of the channel up to 140 m and its dredging up to -14 m, in accordance with the Baltic elevation system, that provides for acceptance of vessels with the draught up to 12.5 m.
The seaside operational area consists of five berths with the total length of 1162 m:
|Berth||Lenght (m)||Depth (m)||Cargo|
